Re: confused about test results.....

Hey,

i'm no expert but so far as i know if you have two CF genes then you must have CF, but from what i understand there are different gene mutations for CF and they can present differently, some not till adulthood.

Tho it does seem strange that you wernt tested earlier as you said you have had bronchitus, pneumonia and bowel problems as well as a family history of CF.

Make sure you see a CF specialist as they are more experienced at diagnosing and managing CF in adults.

good luck and keep us updated
