CF testing
I am 9 weeks pregnant and my doctor recommended to get tested for CF. The 300 euro cost is prohibitive. Do you think I must get tested?

Pseudomonas cepacia
I have a child with CF who always had pseudomonas aeruginosa. Last time we were checked at the lab we had cepacia. I repeated the sputum cultures in three different labs. All three reported pseudomonas, but the first one reported again cepacia. What can I do to find out positively what kind of microbe my child carries? I live in the county.

CF mutations
After genetic testing for CF my wife was found to be a carrier of the c.3635G>T mutation. According to the results the aitiopathology of the mutation is not defined and the mutation is considered to be of unknown clinical significance. I was tested as well and found to carry the c579+3A>G mutation. Both tests were for 99.9% of CF mutations. What is your opinion about the chances for a healthy fetus?

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,
