are cf gene carriers

Are CF gene carriers thin? My husband and I are carriers (one defective gene) and we both are very thin. I'm saying very skinny. I was wondering if this is a trait.

Re: are cf gene carriers

I don't believe so. DH and I have always struggled with our weight. Plus with the high fat/calorie diet DS is on, it's hard to eat a healthy diet. I do think that some carriers have other symptoms -- my BIL, FIL, mom and I all have chronic sinus issues. Some people have digestive issues...
