    You are disqualified on so many levels.

    You're 27 and you can't spell the condition you've had since birth ?

    No man, still its under control but u need to add extra mealtime in your daily diet and no post in the military is accused to that compromise

    Probably not. See a recruiter for a definite answer.

    Diabetes is a disqualifier.

    No you cannot. It is a medical condition and you will not always have access to certain foods, medical facilities, etc....  They will not give you a waiver.

    the issue is, if you are controlling it through diet, they cannot and will not guarantee that will be an option while in.   between MREs and whacked-out meal times while in the field,  you are a risk.  

    so it is unlikely that it will be granted a waiver.

    Do you mean diabetes?

    If so, ask at the recruitment office.
