In brief: Better than ever b4

Children diagnosed with CF now have many advantages over those diagnosed even a few years ago.
Genetic testing, special aerosolized medications, aggressive treatment of infections with antibiotics and nutritional supplementation (fat soluble vitamins, enzymes, etc.) have all contributed to an increase in quality of life and longevity. CF patients commonly live into their 30s and 40s in the us.
