Chance for CF
I am 36 years old. Since I was a child, I had frequent respiratory infections (and pneumonia). I was born in 1982 and had a sweat test when I was young, due to the frequent chest infections, with negative results. I was diagnosed with allergic bronchial asthma. I have chronic sinusitis and I had an operation about it. Despite the operations and the may antibiotics I have taken, it does not go away. My doctor had me to have the sweat test two years ago at Agia Sofia Hospital, and the results were negative again (26). Is there any chance for the symptoms to be caused by CF, and the results of the sweat tests to be false negative? Do I need to get further testing to exclude the possibility of CF once and for all?
CF carrier
We were not genetically tested for CF and now there is no time left. I would like to know if a carrier of a CF mutation is totally without symptoms, and the only way to find out is dna testing? Thank you!
Genotype 7T/9T & 10TG/11TG
I am 14 weeks pregnant and I was tested for 99.6% of the CF mutations. No pathological mutation was detected, but the answer wrote "Genotype 7T/9T & 10TG/11TG". Is this something I should worry about? Thank you!
c.274-6T>C and ΔF508
I want to get pregnant and I was tested for CF. I was found to carry the C274-6T>C mutation and the DF508 mutation, one from my father and the other from my mother. It was suggested that my husband must be tested due to the DF508 mutation. For the other mutation I was told that the data are conflicting, but, since I do not suffer from CF, my child could not suffer. What is your opinion?
Wish to have children
Dear team, my partner and I, we want to have a child. Until now, it did not work and now an azoospermia came out in my partner. The urologist said, we could have a genetic investigation done, if he wanted. My husband (31) has no symptoms. He hasn't any problems with digestion, nor with the lungs or breathing. In the contrary. He is very sportive. I read about the genetic defect that could cause CF. If he has this, would he then be only carrier as he did not have any symptoms in his life and is not ill? Or could the illness still break out after 31 years? I am afraid. Is a genetic testing necessary? I am more afraid because of him then because of the not-fullfilled wish to have children.
Antibiotics without symptoms
Dear expert team, my son (a few months old, CF) has had a throat swab with the finding of Staphylcoccus aureus. For which reason the intake of antibiotics are necessary if he hasn't any symptoms at all like cough, secretions etc. respectively which consequences would it have if one would not give an antibiotic and wait, until symptoms occur? Best regards,
Permanent antibiotic therapy with azithromycin
Hello, are there any new recommendations concerning a permanent antibiotic therapy with azithromycin? Thanks
Genotype T5/T7 and TG11/TG12

pets- rabbits
My friend has CF. We would like to have a rabbit as pet. Is this allowed? We prefer a cage in the house, that we clean daily. Thank you,
Can a Cf patient have rabbits at home? Or should we keep them outside? My friend is a CF patient. Thank you
