Positive Sweat Test?
Hi there! My 20 month-old daughter has had frequent respiratory issues and was finally given the diagnosis of asthma about 2 weeks ago. When the MD told me we needed to test for CF, I went online and read all I could and thought, "wow, that is my daughter". My daughter underwent sweat chloride testing last week and it came back at 69. The nurse's exact words were,"We don't think she has CF, but the test will need to be repeated". In the meantime, we have an appointment scheduled with a pediatric pulmonologist. Everything that I've read and heard has pointed to the fact that this is a positive test and at this point, I am thinking that there is no doubt that she has CF. Am I wrong? Having a diagnosis would be more helpful at this point so that I can prepare myself and get ready for what lies ahead.
