Marine Corps enlistment with hypothryoidism?

Asked August 17, 2016, 12:43 AM EDT

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a few years ago. For reference i am 18 years old. I'd like some clarification on this. http://www.med.navy.mil/directives/Documents/NAVMED%20P-117%20(MANMED)/Chapter%2015,%20Medical%20Exa...
It states the following "(7) Current hypothyroidism (244) uncontrolled by medication, is disqualifying."
Assuming my hypothyroidism is controlled by medication i am not disqualified. If anyone has information on this I'd love to know.
