How does cystic fibrosis affect the person?
Cystic fibrosis can affect individuals in numerous ways. It can cause breathing difficulties, this is because the thick mucus blocks the airways reducing the efficiancy of gas exchange. The mucus can also block the pancreatic ducts, meaning that the pancreatic enzymes can't move into the duodenum and digest food, this produces fibrous cysts. Thirdly the mucus may block sperm ducts and cause infertility. Also, the thick and sticky mucus may trap pathogens, these pathogens may pentrate the epithelial cells and cause infections.
Once the person has Cystic Fibrosis, they are affected their whole life, until there is a cure of course.
The person who has Cystic Fibrosis has it for life.
you can only get cystic fibrosis by inheriting it from your parents
yes, everyone who has cystic fibrosis has had it from birth therefore they have it when they are children.
cystic fibrosis is a chronic illness, so yes eventually a person with cystic fibrosis will die from the disease.
The mucus that forms from cystic fibrosis affects the gas exchange in humans. The build up from cystic fibrosis can affect the gas exchange by increasing carbon dioxide and decreasing oxygen.
If the spouse he or she has the gene needed to pass on cystic fibrosis, then yes it will have children with cystic fibrosis. If the spouse does not have that gene then the child will not have cystic fbrosis but will be a gene carrier of cystic fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis is a inherited disease where ususally by the time of 30-35 the person who has it does die.
Let's call the gene "C." Capital C means no cystic fibrosis; lower c means cystic fibrosis, since it is a recessive gene. CC is a person who does not have cystic fibrosis and also is not a carrier. Cc indicated a carrier. cc shows a person with cystic fibrosis. In order for a child to have cystic fibrosis, its parents must be: 1. cc and cc (both have cystic fibrosis, so every child will as… Read More
A person is born with Cystic Fibrosis. An adult can't '' get it ''. They would've already had it at birth.
Both parents had at least one allele for cystic fibrosis.
it kills you
Cystic Fibrosis is a cronic illness meaning that if you look at a person you cant tell the diff between a cf person
Yes. A person can have a baby with cystic fibrosis at any age.
Most people find out if their child has Cystic Fibrosis soon after they are born but others will be diagnosed before they are 3.
Does the disorder of cystic fibrosis affect specific population of people more than the other population?
Cystic fibrosis is most common in Caucasians of European descent.
It affects the respiratory system.
The Same Way Any other person would get CF (Cystic Fibrosis), although it's Very Rare For African Americans to get it. Cystic Fibrosis is most common among Caucasians.
CFdoes affect you emotionally. I am a teenager girl and I feel very different to my friends and I cry sometimes because of this. So I suppose that's how.
What is cystic fibrosis? Cystic fibrosis is a life threatening disease.
Yes. Environmental factors that can effect cystic fibrosis are exposure to second-hand cigarette smoke, stress, and even living in poverty.
Cystic fibrosis is widely recognized as a lung disease, but it is actually a disease that affects many parts of the body. So yes. it can:) hope this is helpful
Cystic Fibrosis is a hereditary disease. Some famous people who have lived with it are Jerry Cahill, Nathan Charles, and Nolan Gottlieb.
cystic fibrosis (: cystic fibrosis :) cystic fibrosis ^-^
What are the chances of a normal person and a carrier for cystic fibrosis have a kid with cystic fibrosis?
Zero. Cystic fibrosis is an autosomal recessive disease. This means that both parents must carry a mutated gene and have a 1 in 4 (25%) chance of having a child with CF.
Cystic fibrosis is a disorder that affects the lungs, pancreas, liver and intestine. It causes frequent lung infections, which is what mostly causes difficulty breathing.
I was told Irish and Australian nationalities.
Depends. If your mother has cystic fibrosis and your father is a carrier, there is a 50% chance that any of their children will have cystic fibrosis. If the father is not a carrier, no children will have cystic fibrosis, but they will all be carriers.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease and can only be inherited through genes. It all depends on your parents alleles. Let's say that the allele for cystic fibrosis is c. If your Mum has the allele Cc it means she is hetrozygous. If you Dad has the same allele he is also hetrozygous. When they had children, the two small c's could come together to make a child with the alleles cc. (This means that… Read More
You can and you can't die from Cystic Fibrosis........ like if your a healthy case of cystic fibrosis you can't really die but you still can ....and if you asking well how you know......I know because I have cystic fibrosis
The term that best describes the inheritance of cystic fibrosis is that it is genetic. Cystic fibrosis is caused by recessive alleles. Cystic fibrosis is an autosomal recessive genetic disease.
Characteristics and symptoms of cystic fibrosis can vary from person to person. However, typical characteristics include a persistent cough, wheezing, recurring lung infections, poor weight gain and constipation.
Yes, girls can get cystic fibrosis.
Is a carrier of cystic fibrosis
You can not prevent it. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease. CF is also not contagious. You couldn't tell a person apart because it does not effect physical features.
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder, 2 parents have a CF gene, if their offspring inherits that trait they will have Cystic Fibrosis.
yes it can affect life span because of blockage in the lungs and digestive sytem.
The genes on each chromosome control specific functions of the human body. The gene on chromosome 7 produces a protein called cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator. Mutation in the DNA level of chromosome 7 leads to the absence of this protein which leads to cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a recessive disease. It means that both copies of the gene must be defective. An affected person will have abnormal cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator gene on each… Read More
To found Cystic Fibrosis, watch Princess and I!!!
Cystic fibrosis is sex linked.
No, there is currently no cure for cystic fibrosis.
No, you don;t have to capitalize cystic fibrosis.
No. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease.
what are the mental charictoristcs of cystic fibrosis
right now they do not have a cure for Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease.
No. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease.
