Thread: Is this the right test?

    Is this the right test?

    My dr ordered a genetic test it says
    Cystic fibrosis DNA mutation analysis with reflex to polymorphisms. Is this the appropriate test to check for milder mutations? And does it test for all the mutations?

    Is this a cf doctor? If not, maybe you can ask for a referral to one and have them order the testing as well as a sweat test. There are very few labs that do the full gene sequencing and a non cf doctor might not know how to order. Maybe call and ask what exactly is being tested at same time as asking for referral.

    Cf doctors are typically pulmonolgists. Is he at an accredited cf center? Cff.org lists them. I'd just call and ask how many genes it is testing for.
