MY SON WILL BE 3 DEC 2, 2000 HE HAS HAD CHRONIC DIARRHEA MOST OF HIS LIFE. HE SEEMED TO BE "THRIVING"
UNTIL SHORTLY AFTER HIS SECOND BIRTHDAY. DURING THE SUMMER OF 2000 HE GREW APPROX 3INCHES WITHOUT GAINING AND OCCASIONALLY LOSING WEIGHT. HE HAS AN INCREDIBLE APPETITE, BULGING STOMACH, AND POOR MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT. HE ALSO HAS SALTY SKIN AND LOOSE FATTY STOOL. ON TOP OF THAT, HIS FIRST SWEAT TEST WAS A 78. I REALIZE ALL OF THESE THINGS POINT TO CF, BUT HE HAS HAD NO RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED OUT OF THE ORDINARY. COULD IT BE SOMETHING ELSE OR CAN YOU HAVE CF WITHOUT EFFECTING THE LUNGS, OR DOES THAT COME LATER? COULD THE TEST BE WRONG(I HAVE READ OF A 10-15% FALSE POSITIVE) AND HE JUST HAVE SOME TYPE OF FOOD ALLERGY THAT IS CAUSING HIM TO NOT PROPERLY DIGEST HIS FOOD?
