can i join the army with hypothyroidism?
Find answers to your legal question.

can i join the army with hypothyroidism?

Yes you can because it can be controlled by medication. There are many people in the Military with this medical condition and dont realize it. I was diagnosed in my 17th year with it, and i was surprised. Needless to say i continued my service until i retired last year. You might need a medical waiver, but i doubt it. Good luck to you..

AR 40-501

2-8. Endocrine and metabolic disorders

h. Thyroid disorders.

(1) Current goiter (240) is disqualifying.

(2) Current hypothyroidism uncontrolled by medication (244) is disqualifying.
