    who are you in a nut shell

    My name is Melissa
    I don't have CF
    We think my husband has it, but haven't gotten definite declaration on that yet.
    His name is Jason
    He is 25
    Has anyone heard of someone this old being diagnosed with CF?

    He fills about 4 waterbottles a day of that sticky saliva
    His sinuses are terrible
    he has real digestion problems and is always complaining of his stomach hurting
    he weighs 120 and is 5'9"
    He had to get shots when he was little to make him grow
    Could he have this???

    Hello Melissa..Welcome aboard and yes, it is definitely possible to be diagnosed later in life..If you stick around the boards long enough, you will meet many adult diagnosis, including myself. I was dx'd at 33 years old. Good luck with the testing, if it does turn out that he does have CF, he will be finally getting the right treatment.
    To all of the other newbies, welcome!!

    Wow, Brad, I just saw that your oldest brother is about to turn 60 with CF! That's amazing, good for him. I was diagnosed when I was 8, too. Good to see you are doing well for yourself, keep lifting weights!

    Melissa (tinydancer) your husband could certainly have it... that seems unbelivably skinny for his height, and malnourishment is one of the most obvious signs of CF (that, and the coughing, the mucous...) I mean, I am 5'2" and I weigh that much! Good luck finding out what's wrong, even if it's not CF, and welcome to the site.

    And welcome everyone else too.

    who are you

    Hi...I'm new to this forum so I'll introduce myself...

    My name is Melissa. I'm 28, married, no kids-but a dog-and I live in Oakvale, Mississippi. Trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing SINCE I have no have a younger brother & sister and neither have CF. My parents took extra special care of me (so I always thought CF was no big deal) and it's only been in the last year that I've had to pay extra special care to my health and I admit I've gotten a little scared from time to time. I came to this forum in hopes of finding others that could relate to me, who could understand what I'm going through ... let's see, my problems: I developed CFRD at 17 (which my Hemoglobin A1C levels are great!); I do have a liver problem which I take meds for; my biggest problem has always been digestion; ever since Hurricane Katrina came through I have had allergy problems which keep me on antibiotics (I, along with others, think that Katrina brought up some new "species"...); my PFTs have always been really good, I'm due to take a new set in a couple of weeks so my fingers are crossed...

    Nice to meet everyone

    Welcome everyone! I just know you'll love this site..and yes, it's addicting, so get ready!

    Rob, my doc thought I was celiac too! Turned out IBS in conjunction with some hormone issues (not that this would work for you) but my doc changed my birth control and BOOM...Celiac symptoms were gone!

    Newbies, holla if you have those rare liver issues! I love to chat and share similarities!

    Welcome again!
