Celiacs In The Military?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering about the military and celiac disease, I imagine you can't really serve, say oversea's or such because I don't imagine they will make any modified meals for ya.

anyone who was IN the military and got diagnosed? how did that work for ya?

If you are not yet in then celiac will likely keep you from being able to join. If you are diagnosed and hide it that is a federal offense so do tell the recruiter. There have been a couple folks who were in when they were diagnosed and they were able to stay in but kept stateside and others that recieved a medical discharge. It depends on the branch and the persons MOS. If you do a board search with the word military you might be able to locate threads dealing with it.
