Avatar n tn i think it is always better to be on the safe side..did you say sweat test. sweat test is for cystic fibrosis, and children do have lots of breathing issues. he doesn't seem to have ms...but i think go by what your dr is recommended. good luck.
Avatar f tn s tested her for cystic fibrosis and other immune disorders which all came back normally. We were referred to a pediatric gastroentrologist, who ran numerous tests and ruled out everything. He checked the amount of fat in her stools as well, which was normal. I am at a loss. I'm sick of my daughter being sick and not knowing what is going on. Her stools stain the toilet, her underwear, etc. and smell absolutely horrible. She does have a dairy allergy, so she is on a dairy free diet.
1387270 tn?1342742558 Today I received a phone call from my Dr saying that the results from my blood test came and I am a carrier of cystic fibrosis. Now my husband will have to test to see if he is a carrier as well.
676606 tn?1229937962 with mild fever, diarrhea, and vomiting...the ent does not seem to think it is related....we talked about cystic fibrosis(but it is so rare to have no lung involvement, he tells me, and there are steps you have to follow and rule things out first.) it is one illness after another..she is growing and thriving, but always on antibiotic.....
Avatar f tn He has pneumonia every other month (since birth), he has also had bronchiolitis (without RSV), bronchitis, H1N1, and most currently RSV. When he was two we removed his tonsil and adenoids in hopes to help his asthma symptoms. While it did decrease the amount of sinus infections he had, it did nothing to help any other area. He is on Advair, 115/21 two puffs twice daily, and Allegra (for unknown allergies).
Avatar n tn My uncle who is 73 years old was diagnosed last week with cystic fibrosis but given very little information regarding the disease. In the research that I have been trying to do, cystic fibrosis seems to be a pediatric disease caused by a gene. He has not shown any symptoms of being ill until this last year when he has developed a cough that he has been unable to shake and when he went to the doctor they said the bottom of his lungs are deteriorating.

Avatar n tn I was recently told that I had the MTHFR C677T mutation for Cystic Fibrosis, and I am wondering if you could tell me what exactly that means for me, and all the information you can on this subject. My dr's are having a hard time finding information on it, and I was hoping that maybe you would have some information on it.

Avatar n tn unfortunately Cf is a life long disorder and no cure is available but people with cf can lead a full life, there are many things though, firstly once you get the final diagnosis get in touch with the cystic fibrosis association in your area. a few things to keep in mind are hygiene making sure people around you are washing hands, great to have hand sanitizer on you at all times, use disinfectant wipes to wipe down benches and toys etc.
Avatar n tn went in for my 18 week ultrasound and apt and found out I am a carrier for cystic fibrosis but we had to do testing on my spouse to see if he has it as well. That's gonna take 10 days to get back and it leaves me stuck in my head with the internet as my resource. Has anyone else had this problem because right now it scares the crap out of me and I'm trying to not show that to much to be brave but its hard when ur scared. Advice and maybe a little encouragement welcome.
167 tn?1374173817 They thought he had meconium plugs, something I have never heard of before. They were also told that they were going to test for Cystic Fibrosis. Anyhow, I was so happy on Saturday when they came to bring the casserole dish back, baby in hand. He was so cute! I asked them about the tests and how they came out, expecting good news. Unfortunately, he has CF. They are dumbfounded, shocked and sad; as are we! I feel so bad for them!
Avatar f tn There are different types of cystic fibrosis mutations in which some are worse than others. Cystic fibrosis has to do with the thickening of the mucous around the lungs, most can't digest their own food, they have trouble breathing and are put on different types of medication. As long as the doctors catch it in time, you shouldn't have a problem. Although there isn't a cure, they can keep it from getting worse or causing death.
Avatar n tn Please help me I would like to know if at my age - 60yrs old - if it's possible to be alive and have cystic fibrosis. People tell me it's a young persons disease and that you don't live much past 20yrs or so, but I seem to have ALL the symptoms of this disease. I cough all the time for years now, with lots of phlegm.
Avatar f tn I am afraid because I read that this is related to cystic fibrosis and now I think I have it. I also have other symptoms like post nasal drip, seasonal allergies and mucus stuck on my thoath. I also sweat a lot but my sweat is not very salty. My sister also the wrinkling hands. So my question is could I have atypical/cystic fibrosis or at least be a carrier and what is my life expectancy? My doctor says I'm too old to be diagnosed with this, I'm 25 years old.
Avatar n tn If you live in California there are some clinics that do the cystic fibrosis test for about 120$. I am a carrier also but they said even if my husband is a carrier that its only a 1 in 4 chance the baby will have it. Its pretty slim. You could always ask for an amino as you get farther along and ask them to take a sample for that as well. Hope this has been helpful.
Avatar f tn Because if baby has cystic fibrosis the drs will need to plan for babies care accordingly. Such as having a nicu team ready and in the room ect. Its not abour knowing for abortion purposes. Also if you know you can start the paperwork for disability. Its always best to know. Then you can join a support group, research and be as prepared as possible.
Avatar n tn I have seen two doctors, one who thought cystic fibrosis is rediculous and actually had me get a shot of haldol for anxiety. BOTH DOCTORS HAD ME DO A GENERAL WELLNESS BLOOD TEST. RESULTS WERE NORMAL, WITH LIVER FUNCTION ON THE HIGH SIDE OF NORMAL, BUT NOTHING EXTRAORDINARY. THE OTHER DOCTOR HAD ME DO A URINALYSIS FOR KIDNEY FUNTION, WHICH WAS NORMAL, AND AN X-RAY OF BOTH MY CHEST AND GI TRACT, WHICH CAME BACK NORMAL.
9768750 tn?1406394610 Hi Hun Iam a carrier for Cystic Fibrosis. My baby's father is not so it's not likely my son will have it. & correction she can't be a carrier for it. You can be only be the carrier meaning she may or may not have it.
Avatar f tn How close are they to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. My wife is 18 years old and i love her very much and she keeps talking about how she wants to join the army like I have and go over seas with me. I told her to be patient but the scary thing is I dont want to live the rest of my life without her. Do they know how much closer they are to finding a cure or is it up in the air.
Avatar n tn My 8 year old daughter has Cystic Fibrosis. It is a terrible disease that is most devasting to the lungs and usually the lungs are the cause of fatality. She is doing wonderful, but only because of all the treatment she has to go through. From taking 15-20 pills a day to digest every thing she eats, to inhalers & nebulizer meds to 45 minutes of chest physiotherapy. The researchers are so close to finding a cure/treatment for this disease.
Avatar n tn On my twenty week scan it showed an abnormal bowel. Either Side effect of having an Amniocentesis at 13 weeks or cystic fibrosis. I'm absolutely scared stiff. At least two weeks before getting any results. Anyone else been through the same?
Avatar f tn COPD and bronchitis unlikely in children. Cystic fibrosis is a possibility. Non-cystic-fibrosis bronchiectasis in children is another possibility. Persistent Asthma uncontrolled can sometimes cause persistent cough. Only further investigations can help diagnose the cause. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
