Cystic fibrosis is a congenital metabolic disease. Body fluids such as saliva, bronchial mucus or pancreatic secretions are much tougher than usual due to genetic predisposition. Consequences include respiratory problems and indigestion. Cystic fibrosis is not curable. With consistent therapy, however, the course of the disease can be slowed down.
The cause of the disease are defects in the genetic material. Cystic fibrosis is therefore not curable. Time of diagnosis and severity of symptoms can vary widely individually. In many children cystic fibrosis makes a massive impact from birth, in other cases, it is recognized later.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease. It has always been present since birth. But the classic cystic fibrosis symptoms do not always occur in childhood. However, there are often already nonspecific instructions that should be followed. This is especially true if cases of cystic fibrosis have already occurred in the family.
In most cases, in cystic fibrosis symptoms of the lungs occur only in slightly older infants. Newborns usually have no breathing problems. Cystic fibrosis symptoms are often expressed in the form of a cough-throat-like, chronic, irritating cough in slightly older children. The mucus in their respiratory tract is increased, tough and viscous. This obstructs the airflow in the lungs. Over time, a progressive respiratory distress develops.
In patients with cystic fibrosis, the pancreas often becomes inflamed. It secretes a secretion that contains, among other things, enzymes for fat and sugar digestion. In cystic fibrosis sufferers, the secretion due to its viscosity condenses back and causes inflammation.
Cystic fibrosis is not curable. Children born with cystic fibrosis suffer the effects of the disease throughout their lives. However, a combination of physiotherapy, medication and inhalations can significantly slow the progression of the disease. A cystic fibrosis therapy should therefore primarily achieve that those affected can lead as normal a life as possible.
