my child has had breathing problems and bulky foul smelling stool since birth and is now 1 and a half could he possibly have cf?? he was hospitalized for failure to thrive but they did no tests
With this group of symptoms, CF is definitely within the possible things to consider. Not knowing your child specifically, the best approach is to bring your specific concerns to the attention of his primary care doctor and ask for testing. If you are not reassured by what is said or done, ask again. Please don't hesitate to be firm about your need for satisfaction. Good luck.
