The Dr sent me to a G I dr because my babys weight dropped down to the 3%. He weighed 7lbs 3oz when he was born and now he is 10 months old and weighs about 16lbs. The G I dr just flat out told us there is something wrong with him. They have done several test on him.They took blood work and a sweat chloride test and took stool samples. They keep screaming about cystic fibrosis. We have no family history of Cystic fibrosis. So far his blood work is normal and the sweat chloride test came back negative. But yet they keep saying stuff about cystic fibrosis. We are just waiting on the stool samples. They are even talking about doing genetic testing and going in his stomach with a camera. I kinda feel all this is unnecessary. He is hitting his milestones and is a very happy baby. He eats pretty good and never cries with pain. Can someone please help me!!
