Cystic Fibrosis
After the genetic testing for CF mutations my wife was found to be a carrier of the c.476T>C, L159S exon 4 mutation. She is now 16 weeks pregnant. I am being tested for the 95% of CF mutations. In case I am a carrier of a CF mutation, what chances does the fetus have to suffer from CF and what kind of symptoms will it have? If it is a boy, is it certain that he will have azoospermia? What are the chances?

Your opinion
I have a son 20 months old who is 81 cm tall and weighs 9.5 kg. Apart from his small statute, he does not have any of the CF symptoms I have read about. He got ill once and he coughed, but he got over it in two days easily. His stool is normal, his sweat is not salty. Sometimes he eats well, others not so well, but he does not drink much milk, 200 ml/day. We did various tests but all were normal. When I was pregnant I did an amniocentesis and was tested for the common CF mutations with negative results. Our paediatrician suggested we do a sweat test just to be certain. Do you believe that it is possible for my boy to have CF? Thank you for your time!

Genetic testing
Our doctor suggested to me and my husband to get tested for 87% of CF mutations. If one of us is proved to be a carrier, then the test should be repeated covering 98% of the CF mutations. My question is if this kind of testing is safe, or should at least one of us be tested for 98% of the CF mutations.

Carrier or patient?
My son is 10 months old, weighs 8 kg and is 75 cm tall. He suffered from dehydration last summer and we were hospitilised. We discovered that he carries the del508 mutation. We did two sweat tests at Hippokation Hospital and both were negative (values 22 and 23). We were tested for 85% of CF mutations and another mutation was traced. We were asked to have an X-ray and an ultrasound. Is it possible for my son to suffer from CF, since both sweat tests were negative, or is he simply a carrier? His stool is well formed with a normal smell.
