Late Diagnosis, Mild CF?

Hello Everyone,
I am new to this board/website and wanted to do a little introduction.

I have recently had genetic testing done to test for CF, my tests came back that I have two mutations, one being DF508 & the other 617t>g, and am now being referred to get a sweat test done.

I am 25 years old, and I have not necessarily had any symptoms of CF, the ones I have had were always blamed on allergies being that they were fairly mild.

The testing process began, because my older brother and his wife were having issues getting pregnant, after many tests, the doctors found my brother was missing his vas deferens and then was sent to be tested for CF. He has the same mutations as myself, and has tested postive during the sweat test (not sure what the exact results were), and has begun going for yearly lung exams.

I'm very confused about how there can be varying degrees of CF, and what it means to have a mild case of CF...Is it because of the specific mutations that we have that it was only found when we were 25 & 27 years old?

Any information and guidance would help.
Thank you so much
