    Hello Joann,
    I just replied to Erik concerning the Tahoe study and
    read your reply to him and your own possible association
    with this subject.

    As a thought tangent, if you happen to had a Northern
    European and especially an Irish, Scottish or other Celtic
    background, please be aware that a genetic disorder exists
    that bears similar symptoms to CF. It is called "hemachr-
    omatosis" or "ironoverload". It is one of the ten most
    prevalent and least properly diagnosed disorders. It took
    them a year to even suspect my genetic link to the blood
    disorder. It is easily determined thru a simply blood test
    and subsequent genetic test if necessary.

    It would be awful to unnessarily be ill if there is a
    possible diagnosis and resolution leading to "wellness"!
    Please see: www. americanhs.org for more information.

    Best wishes Joann,
    MRDAD

    When I saw the Mass. connection it made me more concerned
    as although I'm a 4th generation San Franciscan, we have
    Peeps on my Mother's side of the family back there in
    Salem and there are so many Irish in your State.

    The disorder can often manifest itself at Mid-Age so you
    have a-ways to go (right?).

    Have a good evening,
    JOE
