A lot: I can list them out one by one per the regs, but there is an easier way to explain it. Essentially, everybody gets a profile. It confirms your ability to perform all minimal required duties of a soldier, sailor, Marine, airman or guard & confirms you passed the PFT. Injuries & diseases are listed as needed. If a condition could put you or anyone else at risk in a war zone, it d/q's. End of story.

AR 40-501 Ch 2-26: For starters. Basically, anything that keeps you from being able to perform soldiering duties as outlined on section 5 of your profile; anything that is unstable, progressive or degenerative; or anything that would put you or your fellow service members at risk in an austere environment or hostile war zone.
