Every Person With Cystic Fibrosis Has Different Symptoms Along With A Personal Treatments Option, Allowing The Individual To Live As Normal A Life As Is Possible.

Today I’m going to touch on the health issue Cystic Fibrosis or as often referred to as CF. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a complex condition affecting approximately 30,000 adults AND children in the US alone on any given day. Cystic Fibrosis is a lifelong health disorder that affects each CF patients daily life, including everything from home and personal life to school and work habits as well.

Cystic Fibrosis affects the respiratory and digestive systems.

Due to the increased risk of Cystic Fibrosis patients risk of infection and cross-contamination, many CF patients are isolated from other. Patients frequently report high levels of depression and anxiety, which can greatly impact disease severity and outcomes, actively following dedication regimens and understanding of Cystic Fibrosis. Being able to treat and care for CF patients has come a long way through advancements over the past decade which allows most patients to go about their daily routine and living longer lives.

Cystic Fibrosis Walgreens LeahSay's Views CF Health

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited health disorder, a defect (mutation) in a gene changes a protein that regulates the movement of salt in and out of cells. Which results in a thick and sticky mucus in the respiratory, digestive and reproductive system which causes severe damage to the lungs and digestive system. Which affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat, and digestive juices. The defective gene causes the secretions to become thick and sticky. Instead of acting as a lubricant, the secretions plug up the ducts, tubes and passageways, most importantly the lungs and pancreas.

Screening of newborns for CF in now performed in all 50 states, which allows diagnosis before symptoms develop.

Although there is no cure for Cystic Fibrosis, treatment can ease symptoms and reduce complications. By closely monitoring and early, and aggressive treatments. Managing Cystic Fibrosis can be complex, your physician and Walgreen’s Care Team is there to help you with your questions and options.

If you or someone you know has Cystic Fibrosis they/you may experience heightened emotions. Please discuss this with the CF patient and family as well as your doctor.

One phrase I dislike hearing as a person with medical issues is… “I know how you feel.” Really? You, you know exactly how I feel and what I go through 24/7 365 days a year? Interesting. Each and every individual person is unique and their symptoms are different no matter what the medical issue maybe.I personally dislike planning things too far in advance because the simple truth is I truly do not have a crystal ball that will let me know if I will be able to move about freely 2 days from now or even a week from today. Each and every day, hour and moment can change within the blink of an eye. I may say I would like to spend the day shopping a week from now, however, I may wake up in severe pain or completely worn out from the pain I suffered from the day before. That will put a kink in my plans quickly. But that doesn’t mean I don’t wish I could have kept my lunch date plans. And if I overtax myself spending the day out and about I will pay for it the following day or days. Take a moment to listen to those with acute illness and lend a hand when needed. You never know whine you will need a hand up.
