Near your doc...: There is no evidence that climate conditions of any sort favor better outcomes for people with cf. The best route is to establish a relationship with a center experienced in long term care of CF patients. Many CF centers provide great transition between pediatric and adult care teams. Find a CF center near you. The CF foundation has great information to guide your choice of caregivers.

Climate & CF: The best outcomes for CF related lung disease are with regular use of airway clearance therapies & inhaled medications, maintaining good nutritional status & closely monitoring for CF related complications at an accredited CF center. Climate will not make any significant difference if you are not doing your prescribed treatments & therapies. Good compliance with therapies will ensure best results.
