Cystic Fibrosis

What is Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is a health disorder that causes severe lung damage and nutritional deficiencies. In the past, cystic fibrosis was considered life threatening. However nowadays improved screening and treatments allow many people with cystic fibrosis to live well beyond their 50s or even longer.

An inherited condition, cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices. Normally, these secretions are thin and slippery, but in cystic fibrosis, a defective gene causes the secretions to become thick and sticky. Instead of acting as a lubricant, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways, especially in the pancreas and lungs.

Cystic fibrosis happens most often in white people of northern European ancestry, occurring in about 1 out of 3,000 live births.
