    Recently, I received a request for remedials from DODMERB.

    So they are requesting that I have to take allergy tests to check for anaphylaxis.

    In the past, about 5-6 years ago, I had a macadamia nut and I found out I was allergic to them because I ended up going to the hospital for swelling lips (an incident which I reported in my medical history).

    So it sounds a lot like anaphylaxis and everything which is starting to concern me.

    Is anaphylaxis still a disqualifying factor?

    Does my case sound like a rare enough case in which I will be excused?

    And if I do get disqualified because the allergy test shows that I have anaphylaxis with macadamia nuts, what should I do?

    Is getting a waiver the next step?

    Thank you for any replies (the help would be much appreciated since this is becoming a major concern for me).

    Extra Information

    I am completely fine with all other nuts (peanuts, walnuts, etc.).
