12 Oct CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRUST
Charity fibrosis trust is working towards a brighter future for everyone with cystic fibrosis by funding cutting-edge research, driving up standards of care and supporting people with the condition and their loved ones every step of the way.
Cystic fibrosis is as varied as the people who have it – each individual’s genotype (genetic make-up) will dictate the symptoms that they experience and how much they will be affected by them. These include poor lung function, frequent and persistent lung infections and the inability to effectively digest food, particularly fats. Additional complications include CF-related diabetes, bone disease and infertility.
