Can you get discharged from the Marine Corps for having diabetes?
i've been in the Marines for almost 4 years now and came home on leave for the holidays and got diagnosed with diabetes.. just wondering my options, if any

Here is a link for Medical Standards for Enlistment, Appointment, and Induction for the Armed Forces. Unfortunately, diabetes is one of the disqualifying medical conditions. I'm not sure, however, if this includes those who have been serving already.


Their policy is to definitely remove you from active duty, but you might be relegated to a local desk job, if not dismissed. This is because the meds you might need may not always be available to you overseas, which can be dangerous. Anyone with a chronic medical condition can be discharged from any division of the military.

I would say it depends on how severe the case is. If it can be controlled by diet and you do not need pills or shots I see no problem. Even if you need the pills or shots it would depend on your job if you could preform it or not.
This is really something you should discuss with your CO. It would be a confidence type talk and your CO would have the best answer.


Sorry to say, but because of your condition you cannot go on active duty.

Physically, you couldn't do it anymore.

So sorry.

I am pretty sure you can. It would be very hard to control your sugars overseas. Especially taking shots and stuff if your T1. I would have to say most likley you will be. Talk to your doctor or diabetes educator they will know. also Thank you sooo much for fighting for us! I think we take our lives here for granted and don't always remember to thank our troops! THANK YOU FOR FIGHTING FOR US! I'm glad your safely home!

Don't know about once you're in but I know for a fact they won't let you in the marines or any other armed services. Hell I tried to enlist in the coast guard and I was denied because I am a diabetic. That and my wrists were to big.

Sadly, Yes. I'm so sorry.
