551 weeks ago @ Run Sickboy Run - How is CF passed down? · 7 replies · +1 points

An additional tidbit: for CFer siblings, they have a 2/3 chance of being a carrier (1 bad gene), and 1/3 chance of not being a carrier (0 bad genes).

Since they have a sibling with CF, we know that the parents are carriers. There are three possible gene combinations that could end up giving a child with no CF: only dad gives his bad gene, or only mom gives her bad gene, or they both give their good genes.

Hope I made sense there?!

Yep, I'm guilty of tripoding when things get tough. But you're giving me hope, this is stuff I can pay attention to and work on. Thanks!

My mom always called it tripoding, I thought it was another term she made up... turns out she actually knew something!

I love this feature, Steve! I have really tight and sore muscles in my upper back on days when I'm having trouble breathing, and sometimes I can feel it even before I really feel my asthma symptoms.

Do you think it's just the asthma's doing or could I be doing something funny with breathing or posture? It's something I'd like to avoid! Treating the asthma symptoms and using a heating pad helps, when I have access to one.
