The first thing that comes to mind is that you have all those conditions treated is what you do. Do what your doctors tell you to do and take care of yourself. If you're asking if there are any benefits available for you...not from what you've told me. You haven't mentioned any of the agent orange presumptive conditions but what you do mention isn't all that likely to be service connected. As we age things happen to our bodies that we can't always blame on our long ago military service.
