Re: Positive Sweat Test but No Gene Mutations
The full screening cannot detect all mutations. There are mutations of CF that are found on other portions of the DNA strand that are not identifiable. If your child has the symptoms, with 2 high sweat chloride test, and responds to medication and treatment that IS a diagnosis of CF.
My daughter is in the same boat and was diagnosed back in 2005.
