: Hi everyone,
: Can anyone help,
: My daughter is 15 and was found to be a carrier of the CF gene when she was 10, due to severe asthma, she has also suffered from severe Gastro problems since a baby i was wondering if her only being the carrier have anything to to with her being so unwell, she is under a new gastro doc who is checking her for IBD and today she is having a pancreas function test, some say possibley the gene is causing the probs, others say no way,

: Any advice would be grateful, bye the way all 6 of us have asthma and four of us have stomach problems, my daughter was diagnosed with IBS at 2, but her new gastro doc thinks there is much more to this than first seems, she has been ill for to long.
: Tanks again Sandrae

Dear Sandrae,

I have 2 daughters w/CF and I AGREE with you that carriers can have symptoms as well!! I have asthma, and IBS (irritable bowel) and my ex husband has had mild gastro symptoms off and on all of his life. Also, I cannot tolerate the hot weather very well either. It would make sense that carriers would have SOME symtoms of CF as we still only carry ONE healthy gene and one faulty one. I'm glad to see you bring this up because I believe it too!!!! Take Care. Lisa
