103. Cystic Fibrosis: Diet And Nutrition
Learn what CF teens need to eat more of, supplements that help, and a sample diet.

Teens Digestive System
Lindsay eats lunch with her friends Lauren and Katie every day, and she hates the conversation they always seem to have: "You're so lucky!" "Yeah, I'd give anything to be able to eat as much as you do and be so skinny!" "Cheeseburgers or mac and cheese every day - that would be great." Lindsay is one of about 30,000 people living with cystic fibrosis (CF) in the United States, and she has to eat high-fat, high-calorie foods just to stay healthy. A lot of the time she just doesn't feel well enough to eat the foods most teens crave. And sometimes, when her schedule's really hectic, she'd love to just skip a meal like her friends do. CF is a genetic disease that affects the body's epithelial cells , which are found in many places, including the sweat glands, the lungs, and the pancreas. An error in these cells causes problems with the balance of salt and water in the body. The body responds by making thick mucus, which blocks the lungs and sometimes other ducts and passageways, causing infections and breathing problems. This mucus can also keep the intestines from absorbing important nutrients like fat and vitamins from food, which means that teens with CF may be short and underweight for their age, and they may get sick a lot because their bodies can't fight infections well. People with CF may need extra calories and nutrients to help them fight infection and keep their lungs strong, particularly if they get sick with colds or the flu.

    Table of Contents
    Cystic fibrosis occurs in about 1 in 2,500 births in Victoria. All patients are seen at the Royal Children's Hospital at the time of diagnosis, which is usually in the first year of life. Some patients living in the south-east of the city or eastern Victoria are cared for jointly by the department of Thoracic Medicine at the RCH and the Department of Paediatric Respiratory Medicine, MMC. The prognosis has improved very considerably over the last 20 years and most patients now reach adulthood. In the ward the resident medical staff will see patients who have acute flare-ups of chest infection and those with severe lung disease. The 50% of patients who have little chest trouble are rarely admitted to the ward, so staff are likely to have a biased view of the condition. The development of a very positive attitude by the parents from the time of diagnosis seems to be very important in the prognosis. The handling of the family at the time of diagnosis is carefully planned. If they are given a gloomy outlook, this can be hard to change.

Boucher, M.D., Director Information about Cystic Fibrosis The treatment for CF is based upon the clearance of thick airway secretions, using chest percussion (e.g. clapping hands on the back and chest), inhaled treatments, and exercise. Antibiotics that fight the particular bacteria found in CF are used when the amount of infection in the chest becomes problematic, and may be administered by mouth, inhaled, or intravenously. The maintenance of proper nutrition is also essential, and requires a high calorie diet, supplementation of certain vitamins, and the use of enzymes that help to digest meals.

What do we know about heredity and cystic fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common, fatal genetic disease in the United States. About 30,000 people in the United States have the disease. CF causes the body to produce thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs, leads to infection, and blocks the pancreas, which stops digestive enzymes from reaching the intestine where they are required in order to digest food. Cystic Fibrosis: A Single Gene Disease Mutations in a single gene - the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Regulator (CFTR) gene - causes CF. The gene was discovered in 1989. Since then, more than 900 mutations of this single gene have been identified. In normal cells, the CFTR protein acts as a channel that allows cells to release chloride and other ions. But in people with CF, this protein is defective and the cells do not release the chloride. The result is an improper salt balance in the cells and thick, sticky mucus. Researchers are focusing on ways to cure CF by correcting the defective gene, or correcting the defective protein.

cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease that is relatively common in the US When someone has cystic fibrosis, they often have lots of lung problems.
Hot Topic : CYSTIC FIBROSIS By: Dr. Barb Goodman Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease that is relatively common in the U.S. Cystic fibrosis affects multiple parts of the body including the pancreas, the sweat glands, and the lungs. When someone has cystic fibrosis, they often have lots of lung problems. The cause of their lung problems is directly related to basic problems with diffusion and osmosis in the large airways of the lungs.
People without cystic fibrosis have a small layer of salt water in the large airways of their lungs. This layer of salt water is under the mucus layer which lines the airways. The mucus layer in the airways helps to clear dust and other inhaled particles from the lungs. In people without cystic fibrosis, working cystic fibrosis proteins allow salt (chloride) to enter the air space and water follows by osmosis. The mucus layer is dilute and not very sticky. In people with cystic fibrosis, non-working cystic fibrosis proteins mean no salt (chloride) enters the air space and water doesn't either. The mucus layer is concentrated and very sticky. People with cystic fibrosis have lung problems because:
~Proteins for diffusion of salt into the airways don't
work. (less diffusion)

CF can occur in other ethnic groups, but is most common in Caucasians. CF results from mutations in the CFTR gene, which is important for maintaining chloride balance in the cell. Carrier Risks Vary by Ethnic Group:
Ethnic Group Carrier Rate
Caucasian (non-Hispanic/non-Ashkenazi Jewish) 1 in 25 Ashkenazi Jewish 1 in 25 Hispanic 1 in 46 African American 1 in 65 Asian 1 in 90 Reasons for CF Testing:
  • Confirmation of diagnosis in affected individuals Carrier identification in persons with a family history Carrier identification in persons currently pregnant or considering pregnancy Screening of sperm and egg donors Abnormal fetal ultrasound (i.e. echogenic bowel)
