Cystic fibrosis carrier testing for adults in East Anglia
If you have a family member who has a genetic condition called Cystic fibrosis, or a partner or family member who is a carrier for this condition, you can have a test to find out if you are a carrier. When two members of a couple are both carriers, they have an increased chance of having a child with Cystic fibrosis. In East Anglia, carrier testing for Cystic fibrosis can be provided directly through your GP.
