Re: Question for anyone with sweat test in the 30's.

How are your twins doing? I too have a 14 year old! My 7 year old daughter's doctor wants to order a pancreatic elastase test before we do genetic testing for CF. She has confirmed diagnosis of fat malabsorption, but I guess he wants to narrow down the cause of this to the pancreas. I would rather just go straight to the genetic test, but if I'm meant to practice "patience" (which so many of you CF moms have gotten good at, I'm sure...) then I can accept that lesson.
How do you handle the "waiting game?" It's been 3 years looking for a diagnosis for my daughter.....!
