    Hello, I am a candidate for USNA with a conditional offer of appointment(LOA). I am currently working through the medical process, and I had a couple questions.
    Several weeks ago, DoDMERB requested 4-5 remedial AMI's for different medical conditions and such, and upon checking my portal today, it states I only have a single disqualification for asthma after age 13, and that it is pending waiver submission and review. Do I need to not worry about the rest of the AMI's n0w?
    Also, last year, in anticipation of the DoDMERB process, I visited my allergist and had a spirometry test performed. She states in the comments of my test that my "spirometry is excellent and he did not reverse after albuterol". Does anyone know the spirometry standards to determine medical waivers for USNA? and would anyone be able to help me interpret these spirometry numbers? A screenshot of my results is linked below.

    Any advice on any of these questions would be appreciated! Thank you!

    Your spirometry results look fine. It shows you don't currently have obstructive (eg asthma) or restrictive (eg fibrosis) pathology going on. So long as you're >80% of predicted, then you're good.

    How recently have you had to use the inhaler or any other asthma meds?

    I couldn't tell you exactly, but its been years. I was prescribed an inhaler(I believe as a precautionary measure) for a long time but I never used it.
