Cystic fibrosis
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited condition. It can have many symptoms, affecting different parts of the body, particularly the lungs and digestive system. CF is the most common inherited disease in white people, affecting about 1 in every 2,500 children born. It is much more rare in people of African or Asian descent.
Diagnosis of CF
About one in five babies with CF are diagnosed at birth, when their gut becomes blocked by extra thick meconium (the black tar-like bowel contents that all babies pass soon after birth). This condition may need surgery. Just over half of people with CF are diagnosed as babies because they are not growing or putting on weight as they should. This is because the pancreas is not producing chemicals (enzymes) which pass into the gut as food leaves the stomach. Without these enzymes, the fat in food cannot be properly digested. In children who are affected, the fat passes straight through the gut. The child does not benefit from the energy from the fat. Since the stools contain an excess of fat, they are oily and very smelly.
Other symptoms
CF is a "multi-system" disease, meaning that it affects many body organs. However, most of the symptoms are to do with the lungs and the gut.

KidsHealth Kids Kids' Health Problems
Every day when she wakes up, Lisa begins to deal with a condition she's known all her life - cystic fibrosis (say: sis -tik fi- bro -sus). While still in her pajamas, her parents clap her back and chest for at least 20 minutes to help clear her lungs of the thick mucus that sometimes makes it difficult for her to breathe. At school, Lisa coughs a lot, so she keeps a box of tissues on her desk just in case she coughs up mucus and needs to spit it out. In gym class, she participates in sports but often gets tired easily. At lunchtime, Lisa takes pills to help her digest her food and get all the vitamins she needs, which helps her keep up her strength to deal with cystic fibrosis. What Is CF?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disease that causes the body to make thick, sticky mucus (say: myoo -kus). This causes problems in two major areas: the lungs and the digestive system. Healthy lungs produce mucus, which protects the airways and makes it easier to breathe. But for a person with CF, the mucus is thick and sticky and can clog up the lungs. This creates a place where bacteria can easily grow - and bacteria cause infections. And it's not only the lungs that are affected in a person who has cystic fibrosis. Mucus-producing cells line the digestive tract, including the stomach, intestines, liver, and pancreas. The pancreas produces enzymes that help digest food and hormones that help absorb sugar. When thick mucus in the pancreas clogs up the narrow passageways, it can make it difficult for people to digest food and get all the vitamins and nutrients they need.

    Cystic Fibrosis: Therapeutic Options For Co-management.
    Patrick L. Bufi, N.D.
    Abstract Introduction Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common lethal autosomal recessive disease found in the Caucasian population, with a frequency of approximately one in 2,500 births. There are at least 500 different genetic mutations associated with the disease, thus making homozygous and heterozygous screening procedures difficult. However, approximately 70% of the mutations are found to be delta F508, making it the most common CF mutation. Delta F508 mutation is consistently associated with a single haplotype "B" which seems to support a "selective advantage" hypothesis. The possible selective advantage for the carriers of CF mutations (heterozygote advantage) could be a defense against the profuse diarrhea and fluid loss seen in cholera. Other selective advantage ideas exist as well. The hypothesis of increased resistance to human strain Mycobacterium tuberculosis, increased resistance to influenza, and protection against bronchial asthma in childhood and early adult life all present interesting possibilities. The primary CF defect is expressed as altered ion transport via the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), which is the protein regulating cyclic-AMP-mediated chloride conductance at the apical membranes of secretory epithelia.

It is the most common type of chronic lung disease in children and young adults, and may result in early death.   Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by a defective gene which tells the body to produce abnormally thick and sticky fluid, called mucus. This mucus builds up in the breathing passages of the lungs and the pancreas, the organ that helps to break down and absorb food. This collection of sticky mucus results in life-threatening lung infections and serious digestion problems. The disease may also affect the sweat glands and a man's reproductive system. Millions of Americans carry the defective CF gene, but do not have any symptoms. That's because a person with CF must inherit
