Hi my name is Christine, I am the wife of a type 1 diabetic in the Michigan Air National Guard. My husband was diagnosed with Type 2 January 16, 2007, he got a waiver and was allowed to stay in the National guard.
Once my husband got his initial glucoses under control, his diabetes seemed remarkably controllable with Metformin, diet and excersise. Until this past fall when his glucoses went very high, finally he saw a doctor who felt like type 2 was a wrong diagnosis...after further testing my husband now has a diagnosis of type 1. He is on Novalog and levamir and they are working on getting a pump for him.
The problem he is running into now is that he was told today that they are probably going to start processing him for separation soon. He has served for 14 years, (4 years active, and 10 in the guard) he is an Iraqi war veteran. He has a good record and was planning to stay in for his 20... He would really like to retire simply because he loves the service and it's been his life since he was 18.
Where do we start? Is it a possibility for him to stay in? How long before they can kick him out?
Anyhelp or input would be greatly appreciated.
