anyone with cf with low normal sweat test?

My daughter was just tested at childrens hospital in milwaukee...We went because of a sweat conductivity of 57 (which is equivalent to a sweat chloride of 42). She is continously sick with resp. infections and has some pretty crazy BM's. Her sweat chloride was 10 on one arm and 14 on the other arm. I was shocked....however they told me without a doubt no CF...but they didn't do any bloodwork. It was weird because I was told she would have a genetic test also but they didn't do it. They said the numbers were so low they don't question it at all. Should I feel comfortable with this? Maybe I'm just an overly worried mom....except she's sick again. Also, we had finished pediapred 1 week prior....any effect on test? They also asked for a stool sample and then said they weren't going to run it because her sweat chloride was normal?? What??? is this the norm? We traveled a long distance and I feel like there are so many unanswered questions.
