I wish there was one clear answer I could give, but CF affects everyone differently. I have a 5 yr old son with CF and when he was 5 months he was: very thin, had no cough, did not have greasy stools, had salty tasting skin, did not have bulky stools, but they were rather foamy, was dx failure to thrive, then developed pnuemonia.

Some Cf kids have a chronic, wet sounding cough, some don't, some have weight issues, some don't. Its just one of those things. I am glad your Dr. recommended a sweat test, this way you can hopefully rule out CF. Good luck, this is probably a nerve wrecking time for you & your family.
