In brief: CF screening

Presenting symptoms in CF can be varied and can be missed early in life.
Some of the symptoms include poor growth, oily stools, constipation, meconium ileus, coughing, wheezing, recurrent lung infections, if you would like me to review the records, they can be faxed to prmg, 858 259 9689 at no charge to you. You may want to discuss CF screening with your physician.
