My lecturer today mentioned this condition in class and it struck my attention. I've researched a bit about it but I still want interactive comments here about this condition. It seems really bad.
While there is no cure yet for cystic fibrosis (CF), people with CF are living longer, healthier lives than ever before. In fact, babies born with CF today are expected to live into their mid-40s and beyond. Life expectancy has improved so dramatically that there are now more adults with cystic fibrosis than children.
So you're saying that they can't have physical contact with people?Well, that's not the worst part yet.
For people with CF, being close to others with the disease puts them at greater risk of getting and spreading dangerous germs and bacteria. This is called cross‐infection. Not only are these dangerous germs difficult to treat, but they can also lead to worsening symptoms and faster decline in lung function.
They are easily susceptible to infection so basically, the major treatment is supportive care and keeping a perfect hygiene. The use of dietaryOh! Wow. Are there medications to manage this condition?
