ANY AND ALL INCLUDIN: G eye, feet care, meds, supplies, glucometers, insulin, and all supplemental care. My dad is a veteran, so i know. He gets this directly from the local va clinic.

Those medical items are great to have when suffering from diabetes. However, making sure the veteran is receiving the correct level of compensation for the complications related to medical issues associated with diabetes is important. Oftentimes, veterans are not claiming worsening hypertension and cardiac disease and other conditions, SECONDARY to diabetes.

Depends: If you diabetes can be attributed to or tied to your time in service (such as agent orange in particular) then there are significant VA benefits. Check with the counselor at the VA hospital near you or with your veterans organizations like the VFW.
