hello imondeck, how old is your son now? I thought they implemented the prick test for CF back in 1989 (a year after I was born unfortunately :() I was sick my whole life till 14, then was finally diagnosed monitoring my health alot better now
Hello and welcome
He will be 12 on Sept. 9. I believe Oklahoma didn't come on board with the newborn screening until 2004. I have an indepth article on the newborn screening somewhere in my files if anyone is interested in reading it.
He was tested several times when he was 2 and than 4 for other things due to his failure to thrive - celiacs, heart problems, etc.... They never thought to test for CF until I pushed really hard last year.
