    Son waiting on ROTC got inflamed colon at end of football. No family history and only real symptoms were weight loss and loose stools. Had colonoscopy and they gave him steroid which seems to have cleared everything up, not sure of cause yet, could be allergy or unknown parasite. Is this a DQ issue?

    Tim ... I am NOT a doctor ...

    Here is the link to the reg DoDMERB would use to determine if DQ:

    https://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/dodi/613003p.pdf

    Section 5.12 page 21 seems applicable ... Appears it COULD be a DQ issue, but from what you wrote it seems your DS is still going through it, and is about at the other end of this event? You might show page 21-22 of the reg to your DS' doctor and see if any of those conditions apply ...
