Short story.. I have Graves Disease. Levels have fluctuated from around 37.4 on diagnosis to 21 and I'm not on anti-thyroid medication currently.
I want too find out that in the next couple of years if I get better, either having not relapsed and or being under active if I have RAI, if I can join the British Army or Marines?
Medics criteria states 'Certain Thyroid' diseases but it's too vague. I am not requiring medication forever unless under active and even then, my friend who is underactive has been told if she's free for 12 months of controlled levels she can enlist. But elsewhere I've heard that lifelong medication might hinder my application because of being on operations abroad etc.
I don't want to start the ball rolling later on to be told I cannot join definitively. I know it sounds like a long shot, I am focusing on recovery but just wanted to know my options for the future with the British Army.
Thanks in advance,
