it takes docs more than three years to diagnose anything properly so by default, no, a three year old cant be diagnosed with something that takes doctors five years to diagnose. wait another two years, then yes.

Most people are diagnosed with CF at birth or before the age of 2. A doctor who sees the symptoms will order either a sweat test or a genetic test to confirm the diagnosis. The signs and symptoms of cystic fibrosis may vary with age, leading to a later diagnosis in some individuals.

Yes, BUT. CF is a hereditary disease. It is carried in the genes. If both parents have the gene, then the child can have CF. Generally there is a history of it in the family, so chances are good, from the information you gave, s/he does not have CF.


Mary
It is possible especially if the child does not have much of the gi problems. The doctor could have misdiagnosed it as asthma, bronchiolites, etc. A sweat test will determine the answer.


Dr Frank
yes I m afraid they can. However in an otherwise thriving child of normal height and weight the chances are very slim. However it is always wise for doctors to check even low likelihood diagnoses.


Pelagia
Yes, I think so - they thought I had it when I was 14. Turned out I didn't but, they did investigate it.

I think it is possible that the doctors could have missed it, this kind of thing happens.

It's possible that a child could be diagnosed with CF at the age of three, but if he is growing well and the appropriate height and weight for his age, then it is much less likely that he has CF.

There are lots of reasons for recurrent wheeze and cough in children, including asthma, and with a strong family history then this diagnosis is fairly high up the list of possibilities. But it's always worth checking for some of the other, less common causes, like CF because they are important to diagnose.
