Medical exam: Would this consitute denial?

We've got all our important paperwork on file now, just waiting for the Embassy in Tokyo to book my husband an interview. :thumbs:

He'll be going for a medical exam at an approved facility within a month. Recently, he had a health check at work and found out he has slightly high blood pressure, and hyperuricemia, and slight problems with his optic nerves. The doctor told him he has a 90% of developing gout in his life. He's worried that this is grounds for denial, but I think his condition is not serious and can be managed with medicine and lifestyle changes. I think the government is looking for communicable disease like AIDS or hepatitis.

Is there some list out there of diseases that qualify for denial so we can put our minds to rest?

He will need to bring the medical information with him to the appointment as well as a letter from the doctor. They will check blood pressure during the exam, so having his doctors information and papers will help greatly.

Great, I'll tell him to bring those papers to his medical appt. But, surely high blood pressure isn't grounds for denial?

Yes they are mainly checking for communicable diseases and making sure they are taken care of. Some of the things they find are so they can be taken care after the immigrant is in the USA. Some like TB, they want treated before entry. They also check for vaccination history, and mental health state. If a person isn't mentally stable, I guess the assumption is they may not be able to make a competent decision to move the the USA. There is a whole list of vaccines you're supposed to have before he can adjust status in the USA. Some vaccines need boosters, so its good to at least get the first in a series before arrival, plus make sure he has proper documentation of the ones he has had. The medical issues that were recently found with him are nothing to exclude him. Although he may want to start taking something for the high blood pressure.

Thanks so much! What kind of mental health check do they do, just ask some questions? He hasn't been formally diagnosed with any mental health issue, but he's worried he might have depression.

Its grounds to pause the medical results and to be told to go see your personal doctor to get checked out before they release the immigration medical. But having all his papers already from his personal doctor will stop that from happening.

Questions asked are: Have you ever been or think you are depressed? Have you ever been on depression medication? Have you ever tried or wanted to commit suicide? Do you often think of dying? etc. Basic things. Answer the questions truthfully. If yes to any the doctor can choose to stop the medical and have you sent to a therapist to see what kind of danger you could be to yourself or others, but the doctor can also deem it not strong enough evidence and let you pass that portion of the medical as well.
