I have two children, a boy (3 1/2) and a girl (18 months).
Both kids have suffered with constipation since they were 6 months old, bad gas pains since birth and have failed to gain weight like they should. My son turns 4 in October and weighs 25 lbs. They have otherwise been very healthy - a couple of colds and an ear infection.
After a week of unexplained GI bleeding my son was referred to a Ped. GI Specialist. She suggested doing a sweat test to rule out CF. His test came back borderline (42).
A second sweat test was performed on him and my daughter was given her first. My son's again came back borderline (42) and my daughter's was normal.
We now have an appointment with our local CF clinic for this Friday. Have any of you had borderline results? If so, what was the outcome? Should I still be concerned about my daughter's CF status even though her test was normal?
Thanks in advance,
