As a Vietnam veteran I have been 100% TDIU for 18 years. I was recently contacted by VA and advised to file for presumptive issues of MGUS and Hypertension. If I file for presumptive conditions, could that affect my TDIU status? Positive influence or negative? Thank you for the counsel you provide for all vets!
Applying for the additional conditions will not have any negative effects on your status. You may find yourself with a rating for high blood pressure and that opens the gate to a dozen secondary conditions (IHD, PAD, CAD, RAD and more) all brought about by hypertension. This should be a move in the right direction for you. Go for it. Good luck sir.
