In this study, rates of chronic medical conditions in Gulf War (GW) veterans (n = 448) were compared with the general population, embodied by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) cohort (n = 2,949). GW males were at increased risk for reporting seven chronic conditions, while GW females were at decreased risk for high blood pressure and at 19.5% increased risk for diabetes when compared with NHANES women. GW veterans reporting chemical weapons exposure during the war showed higher risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and chronic bronchitis, while those reporting taking anti-nerve gas pills had increased risk of diabetes and were 12 times more likely to report a heart attack. GW veterans are at higher risk of chronic conditions than the general population and these risks are associated with self-reported toxicant exposures. View this paper
