Hi,
I know this must be an uneasy time for you. Just be sure the sweat test (gold standard test for CF) is done at a CFF accredited facility, where they are properly trained. My child w/ CF was born at a healthy weight and at about 2 months of age starting w/ the coughing, wheezing and lack of significant weight gain. Her sweat test was done at our local hospital and it came back inconclusive. She was then sent to a CFF accredited hospital where the test was done twice and both times was in the positive range for CF. She is now 2 1/2 years old. She also had the frequent, oily stools, rounded belly, fingers shrivel rapidly in water, salty skin. I wish you and your family the best.
