DS has mainly digestive issues. We struggle to keep him at the 50th percentile.

Though he does have some sinus issues -- his nose never runs, the mucus is just too thick and sticky.

Until we got his digestive enzymes (supplements he takes to digest fat and protein) his stools were fluffy like cake frosting when on formula -- sorry TMI, but greenish, greenish yellow, had a sharp smell to them. Sometimes when he doesn't get enough enzymes -- eats more than expected there will be a oil slick in the toilet. Sometimes orangish that looks like the fat from frying hamburger. Greasy, oily, bulky stools can indicate CF.

When you kiss him do your lips taste salty? 'Course if you can't get him to sweat, probably won't. In the summer times DS will have actual salt crystals on his hairline.

He doesnt taste salty but then he doesnt sweat so that might be the reason, when I asked the dr about it yesterday she said being sweatless is not a symptom of cf so I of course asked if that would have an impact on whether he would even be able to taste salty and she didnt seem to think so. All I know is when i change his diaper ( he isnt trained yet this is the month when Im buying him a potty, he is only 32 inches long and the toilet intimidates him ... was waiting till he was tall enough to use a step stool but thats taking a long time hehe) his poop is often gray from the iron or orange and before that mostly green ... often the consistency of mousse or pudding that has been painted with glaze or mucous ( omg this is getting tmi lol) and it varries in smell from vomit( honestly ) to rotten something i cant even explain but wants me to vomit ( honestly) lol they wanted to rule out cf so when the sweat testing failed and i was told he would only be genetially tested based on approval ( mainly because his skin isnt salty and he has crystal clear lungs) I am at a loss
