Our Broward County Pediatrician Just Told Me That My Newborn Baby Tested Abnormal For The Preliminary Diagnosis Of Cystic Fibrosis. How Will I Know For Sure If My Baby Has CF? I Just Lost My Job And Dont Have Much Money To Pay For These Tests.
A: Cystic Fibrosis in Broward County patients is a serious lung disease causing a thick build up of mucus in the lungs and digestive system. If your baby tested abnormal for the CF screening, more testing will be required.
Only 1 in 3 infants that test abnormal actually end up testing positive for the disease. Subsequent tests required include a sweat test to determine if your baby has a high level of salt, chest x-ray, fecal fat test, and lung function test.
Understandably, you are stressed by the news about your baby’s health, and the medical costs involved. For young children, it is vital that treatment begins as early as possible. You will need to have the remaining tests done to determine if your baby has Cystic Fibrosis.
Social Security disability in Florida is offered to children and adults diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. An experienced Broward County disability attorney can help you gather what you will need to file a claim to collect S ocial Security benefits and assistance with your mounting medical costs.
