[IP] Vietnam Veterans



Hi all,

I am asking any Vietnam Vets that have T2 DM if they would respond to 
this query. Vets who were in Vietnam between the years 1962 and 1971, 
were exposed to heavy concentrations of the Herbicide Agent Orange and 
like Dioxins  of different colors. Many life threatening diseases are 
attributed to this herbicide.  In 2001 the US department of Veteran 
affairs determined that DM T2 could be attributed to the Dioxin. Any vet 
who has T2 DM should be contacting the VA for assistance. The VA 
supports pump therapy if you have one. But unfortunately the government 
is a little behind the curve and at this time only supports the MM brand 
of pumps. But the way I look at it, a little something is better then 
nothing at all.
