Having a sweat test

A sweat test involves collecting sweat and measuring the amount of salts (chloride). This helps us to assess whether your child might have cystic fibrosis (CF), a genetic condition that affects the lungs and the digestive system. This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) describes what to expect when your child has a sweat test.
