Since changing my avatar to the CF Trust Logo I've had three Members contact me because they either have CF or they know someone with CF.
I just wondered how many HUKD Members have or know someone with CF.
[U What causes Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis is caused by a single faulty gene that controls the movement of salt in the body.
In people with Cystic Fibrosis, the internal organs become clogged with thick, sticky mucus resulting in infections and inflammation making it hard to breathe and digest food.
For a baby to be born with Cystic Fibrosis, both parents must be carriers of the faulty CF gene. A baby born to two carriers has a one in four chance of having Cystic Fibrosis.
[U Treatment of Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis is a multi-system disease. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust recommends the best care for people with CF is at a specialist CF centre by the multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.
