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.

Is cystic fibrosis treatable?

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 ;)
