Re: Autoimmune Disorder? or not?

DS has CF and passed his sweat test with flying colors. His blood test on the other hand, showed one of the most common CF mutations. There are over 1500 identified genetic mutations for CF. We had no family history.

The sweat test used to be considered the gold standard; however more and more people are being diagnosed as adults. Were misdiagnosed as having asthma or IBS... Depending upon they were affected -- lungs, digestive...

What caught my attention about your post was the pseudomonas. A VERY common bug for CFers to get.
