What kinda of rating have people been given from the DoD for asthma? What was the basis?

Also, is the FEV value taken pre-bronch and post exercise for exercise induced asthma?

Thanks in advance!

I know little about this subject except I am rated @ 10% for asthma. (I have other service connected disabilities that resulted in SMC-S).

I did not have asthma when I entered the service in 1966 and it developed while I was was on active duty. To this day, I used a rescue inhaler (albuteral).

Service connected: There must be a history of attacks in the record for the VA to consider. VA rates asthma under 38 C.F.R. 4.97, diagnostic code 6602. Ratings range from 0 percent to 100 percent. 38 CFR § 4.97 - Schedule of ratings - respiratory system LINK <---

Thanks Ron. Ive read the CFR multiple times. I wonder what they consoder immunosuppressive medication. Technically the leukotriene inhibitors (singulair) is a immunosuppressive but i doubt they see it that way.

This site describes that type of mediation. LINK to website <----

John Hopkins discusses the medication for Lupus, but also provides a list: LINK to that site <---
