Cystic fibrosis

In cystic fibrosis, the lungs and the gastrointestinal system become filled with sticky mucus. Cystic fibrosis is genetic and symptoms usually start during childhood. There is persistent cough, respiratory infections that come and go and there is very poor weight gain in children. Tests to screen for cystic fibrosis are done early in an infant’s life. Treatment includes reduction of symptoms as well as treatment of infection using antibiotics.
