    Just to update this daughter is displaying more symptoms digestively than before. I am frustrated because her bowel symptoms match her deceased brother but yet no doctor will say yes or no. I just need answers. Ideas?

    I would suggest that you Google Steven D. Freedman, MD, PhD. He is at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. In his practice there he only sees adults but he does see children one day a month at the Boston Children's Hospital.

    It is my opinion that there is nobody better dealing with the subject of digestive issues, with CF Patients, than Steve. I would caution you that, digestive issues in CF Patients COULD lead to Pancreatitis and complete pancreatic insufficency..

    My Grandson has Delta F508 and C16796>A (R560K) and 1706A>G (Y569C) He is pancreatic insufficient, has chronic infections, hip dysplasia, etc. My daughter and I are still unclear what it means when you have 3!

    I think there were a couple individuals who've had three mutations. Hopefully your grandson is going to an accredited cf clinic and is being treated accordingly for those symptoms.
