One thought on “How is Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis (CF) treated?

  1. Arti says:

    We expect your child to have a normal life and find a way to fit cystic fibrosis into their daily living, rather than have all of their activities revolve around the disease. The number of adults living successfully with cystic fibrosis has been increasing each year. With close monitoring and a consistent care plan, adults are able to manage the disease to participate in normal everyday activities. The parents likely do not have the disease. The severity of the disease can differ from child to child, even in the same family. Cystic fibrosis is a congenital disease that is present at birth. Treatment begins within days of diagnosis. Most babies are screened for cystic fibrosis as newborns in the hospital, with a blood sample taken from their heel.
