Good evening.

My sister was just diagnosed with CVID. What are the chances I also have CVID? I am an asthmatic.

Thanks for your input.

  • You can request to be tested. I have a son with CVID and his two siblings do not have it but they do have a weaker immune system than normal. One of the warning signs is having a blood relative with it.
