    Hello everyone,

    I have read the medical requirements for enlisting but i cant seem to find any clear answers for my question.

    I have a Growth hormone deficiency, which is a height disorder, I am 5ft 1in and weigh in around 65-68KG.

    I do not need or take any medication for it, but as it is classed as an Endocrine disorder (the pituitary gland) so would that make an unsuitable candidate?

    The reason I am unsure is because even though It is an endocrine disorder I am 28 so I will not be going through anymore growth spurts, so technically the growth hormone deficiency is no longer a condition? or A re-occurring condition other than being short of stature.

    Also i'll answer it now YES I can get over the 6ft wall but no i cannot get the cup off of the top shelf for you haha.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It’ll be a no.
    Endocrine disorders including Pituitary disorders are an automatic fail. Permanently unsuitable

    One of the medic types or career gurus will confirm I’m sure.
