    Hey everyone,

    I was in the DODMERB process since October of 2017. I was pending DQ for shellfish and was giving the following for remedial requests.

    Code Description
    R259.10 Applicant pending Disqualification for D271.42 - Current or history of oral allergy syndrome , must complete AMI(s) before waiver processing may be considered

    R252.11 Food Allergy Questionnaire

    R270.00 Provide copies of all medical records regarding Allergy evaluations and allergy testing related to possible shellfish allergy.

    R272.00 Obtain allergen specific IgE; quantitative or semiquantitative for: Shellfish.

    I did all of them except for R272 regarding the Ige test. Long Story short, I withdrew via email because after going to labcorp 3 times and them not having my prescription for the blood test, I got frustrated and wanted to get the blood test through a different process. However, withdrawing withdrew me from the whole program. At the same time I got a full time job and stayed away from the military process in general.

    Fast forward to now and I ended up getting a letter from the doctor saying that my allergies to shellfish does not affect me and I can eat them without any reactions. Do I still have to do R272 since now I have a letter? I was told the blood test would react as very high but wouldn't be accurate since it could be a false positive.

    I submitted all my work to DODMERB already via email to my last name representative and am hoping to hear back. But my recruiter has not put me back in yet. He will once I meet with the OSO and I can prove my commitment. Will they still look at my medical files even if I am technically withdrawn? Mark Taylor was able to add my recent letter and records but just told me to note that I am not in the program.

    Really hoping that at-least my paperwork is in a queue to be looked at.

    Any help or stories?
