<P>Hello, </P>
<P>My name is shantal and my aunt died of Cystic Fibrosis when she was only 6 years old. My mother was tested for the gean and was told she didnt have it but as i have been doing research on this desease i have found there are many different mutations and that the test for the gean isnt always accurate. So ever since i can remember i have always had intestinal problems and they have gotten worse over time it seems they excelerated once i hit puberty i am now 22 years old. and for a while now i have been experiancing mucas in my throat at first i though it was just a cold but it doesnt seem to go away. the doctors have tested me for every kind of intestinal problem there is and everything comes up negitive. what i am wondering is if there is any possibility i could have a Mild form of CF.</P>
<P>&nbsp;</P>
<P>Please Help,</P>

Getting tested wouldn't be a bad idea, but the test is costly, so insurance may be a factor. Also, sometimes carriers have some symptoms. Your best bet would be to get evaluated at an accredited CF clinic.
