About cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disorder caused by a defective gene. It is characterized by the formation of thick mucus that accumulates in the lungs, digestive tract and other parts of the body leading to severe respiratory and digestive problems [1]. In the lungs, the mucus obstructs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients [2].

Over 70,000 people live with cystic fibrosis worldwide and more than 75 percent of people with CF are diagnosed by age 2. The majority of the CF population is age 18 or older. The type and severity of CF symptoms can differ widely from person to person. Therefore, although treatment plans can contain many of the same elements, they are tailored to each individual's unique circumstances [2].

The above products may be suitable for treating patients with cystic fibrosis. We recommend that you discuss the suitability of possible treatment options with your doctor. For further information please contact our support team at support@thesocialmedwork.com.
