Hi anyone. I am 19 years old and want to start my process of applying for WOFT. I am still somewhat young so I'm taking things easily. My only concern is my blood pressure. Since I was 16 I have been taking medication to manage my blood pressure. I've always been fit and healthy, I am not overweight or anything. My doctor has recently brought the idea of taking me off my meds since my blood pressure has been great since I started treatment. The medication I'm taking is a very small dosage and so I strongly believe that I can beat this by starting a healthier lifestyle. I know high blood pressure is a DQ, but would anyone know If I could get a waiver (or have to) assuming that I'm able to control my blood pressure without any medication? I heard its a pain in the butt to deal with waivers, but I won't give up easily as it's my ultimate goal in life to one day be an Army aviator.
