If two people with cystic fibrosis were to have children then the kids would also have it. Also, cystic fibrosis is a pretty nasty disease. It's where the mucus that protect organs etc becomes thick and sticky and the person with it often ends up with serious lung diseases or intestinal infections which can be dangerous, painful and expensive. But it's the parents who are the ones choosing whether they want this for there children.
Good Question. The answer is cystic fibrosis is not contagious, however, people with cystic fibrosis tend to carry bacterial infections that can cause serious issues to other people with CF, so infection control procedures should be used when two or more cystics are around each other. General population folks need not fear of getting cystic fibrosis from others - it's a hereditary disease.
More than 1,000 different mutations in the CFTR gene have been identified in cystic fibrosis patients. The most common mutation (observed in 70% of cystic fibrosis patients) is a three-base deletion in the DNA sequence, causing an absence of a single amino acid in the protein product. About 2,500 babies are born with cystic fibrosis in the U.S. each year. More than 10 million Americans carry the cystic fibrosis gene but don't know it.
There is no evidence to show that it will be detremental to the Cistic Fibrosis its self, as long as you maintain your treatment regime there should not be a problem with you using them in moderation.
Other CF's and people with Chest Infections. And extremeexercise and low fat diets!
I have cystic fibrosis,and i think the best are (if you mean sports) ice skating,rollerblading,bike riding.If you/youre relative or child has cystic fibrosis and it's a good case then basketball maybe? I personally do all that stuff,but if the person is interested in music they should learn some musical instrument maybe?Like piano,violin,guitar.And if good case then drums maybe?
Cystic fibrosis is noncommunicable, so in that respect there is no concern. If you want to have children then there is about a 50% chance your kids will have CF, there is genetic screening to determine if your also a carrier, thus raising the chance. CF is most common in white Europeans especially of German descent. With early identification and tratment the outlook for a long life for CF patients is better than ever.
All kinds of people. If you have recently suffered from measles or chicken pox you can easily catch it just stay away from pets and farm animals and you should be fine!
Cystic Fibrosis can be permanently treated, but you can control it with daily breathing treatments and clapping treatments( make cupped hands and then pat yourself or the patient on the chest and in the back) which loosens the thick, sticky mucus in the lungs. Some CF patients need to take medicine. Young CF kids and teens should exercise as much as they can because it loosens the mucus. Hope this helps ;)
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects the mucous membranes of the body. The ones that are most vulnerable are in the lungs, so a health care assistant should be sure that they, themselves, are not sick so they do not spread anything, particularly a respiratory infection to them.
You should know the answer to this yourself. You said you are in the 90s that means that you are 90% of predicted.
Yes, I would see a doctor, you might have poly-cystic fibrosis.
Absolutely infact its recommended that they should take vitamin E, multi-vitamins and sometimes vitamin K (helps bones). Ive been taking them for as long as i can remember and my dietician is always asking if ive taken them! Hope this helps
