Hi, I am new to this board and thought I would say a little about
My name is Phil and I am a 29 year old guy who was just diagnosed with CF. I have always had bad sinus infections my whole life and in the past year was hospitalized 2 times, one time for Pancreatitis and another time for a high white blood count they could not explain.
This past year has been a complete blur and I am a little confused right now and was wondering if someone might be able to explain something to me?
I had a sweat test and the genetic test done. I just got the results 3 days ago and I still am in kinda shock. My sweat test was 59 but my genetic test showed (and this is where I am lost) a delta f508 and a 5t variant. I have very little idea what that means.
I also need to admit that I smoke and I guess that means I have to quite ASAP. But I was wondering what that means regarding the genetic test. Is this a mild form of CF, I am just very confused. Any help would be great.
Thank you for your time,
