Re: Daughter of 13 diagnosed with CF three days ago

it seems you have a HUGE iron problem, which may cause many of the symptoms. There is Genetic Iron Problem - Hemochromatosis, as well as "Iron Overload" and "Iron Toxicity". Many of the Cereals today have a full day's worth of Iron (check the labels), and that is not to mention all the other iron sources in diet. try googling the above, and you should get to sites which explain the tests needed to determine Iron Storage Problems (NOT the same as measuring Iron- one can be Iron deficient, and still have Iron Storage Problems)..

Might be of interest to check out.
