Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. from joining? Thanks.
  2. It depends - What effect is it having on you?
    are you depressed, or are you always tired and falling asleep? And are you undergoing treatment?
    If you are currently depressed then I suspect that would bar you from entry until you get the all clear from your doctor.

    But there are obvioulsy a lot of factors and points to take on with an underactive thyriod.
    The best advice I can give you is go talk to the unit you want to join - Perhaps with some written documentation from your doctor with specific details and go from there.

    Theres no harm in asking, and getting down to the unit and having a chat is ultimatley the only way you will find out for sure.

    Good luck, hope it all works out.
  3. check the thread 'JSP 346', look in leaflet 9 endocrine disorders. para 3.9.5.
  4. Is that one of those conditions that fat people say they have because they eat too many pies?
