I guess I'm just looking for some feedback.  My daughter is  months old, and has been growing well and never been sick a day in her life until last month when she was hospitalized for dehydration due to vomitting and diarrhea.  While she was there they found she had pancreatitis.  It still hasnt resolved, and now they are testing for CF for the second time.  The chlorine sweat test came back high normal, so they drew blood to retest yesterday.  I'm going out of my mind with worry! Do you think the chances are that she has CF? We dont have any family history, so it hadnt crossed my mind til they brought it up.
25 year old woman, Dx with crohns 2004.  Currently on remicade 10mg/kg, Pentasa, Azathioprine, prednisone 15mg and weaning, glucosamine with chondroiten, Calcium with D, and a multi prenatal vitamin.
I have tried asacol, colazol, entocort, fiber tabs, and have to take phernergan, tylenol with codeine, and ativan once in a while when i flare badly.
