Posted

Am I able to join the Air Force with Hypopituitarism with a waiver if I do the Direct Commissions Officer path because I am healthy, fit l, I take medications and the specialty jobs don't even pose a risk to me. Please someone tell me, I want to know that there is hope.

I can't tell you about the AF for certain, but I have seen documentation that other branches disqualify for chronic conditions requiring things like daily steroids, biologics, immune modulators, etc. Are you on daily DDAVP or something similar? If you're an otherwise competitive candidate, give it your best shot. Start the process and be prepared to duke it out for a waiver.

There is hope. But you will competing against those who don't need a waiver. You can only try... Good luck!

If you don't ask, the answer is always no. :) Good luck!

Alright, thank you. And no, I am not on it
