Signs help detect fatal genetic disease

Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease in the United States _ affecting more than 30,000 children and young adults.

According to Dr. Peter Hiatt, director of the Cystic Fibrosis Care Center at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, the disorder causes the body to produce thick, sticky mucus impacting the normal functioning of the lungs and pancreas.

"The most common symptoms include salty skin; persistent coughing, wheezing or pneumonia; and excessive appetite but poor weight gain," Hiatt said.

The standard diagnostic test for cystic fibrosis is a simple and painless test called a sweat test which measures the amount of salt in sweat. Parents who suspect their child may have cystic fibrosis should contact a physician immediately for an evaluation.
