IHD and Diabetes


I draw 30% for IHD and 20% for Diabetes. Recently,I had both left & right carotid artery surgery for blockages 80-85%.My question is, is this secondary to my diabetes or IHD ? What DBQ do I file !

Jim's Reply:

You'll seek compensation for carotid artery disease as secondary to the DMII, not the IHD. Use the DM DBQ.
