... No family history here. Does he taste salty? When you kiss him on the forehead, do your lips taste salty? DS has more bowel issues, because he's pancreatic insufficient and requires digestive enzymes; however, he also has one of most common mutations, too.

All I know is when i change his diaper ( he isnt trained yet this is the month when... (14 replies)
