Hello,

Any cf carriers aware of the work of Dr. Garry Cutting at Johns Hopkins University who has evidence to suggest that being a CF carrier is symptomatic contrary to previously accepted beliefs. "In Dr. Cutting's survey of documented CF carriers, there was an incidence of 34 percent of chronic rhinosinusitis, more than double the normal incidence."

Any CF carriers noticed a higher incidence of disorders associated with CF sufferers?
