First of all did you have the sweat test done at an accredited cf center? Second of all I am pretty sure that a sweat test with 52 as the result is considered borderline and not necessarily positive. This is my understanding of the sweat test:

40 or less = negative for cf

40 to 60 = borderline

Greater than 60 = positive for cf

Hope this helps!
