In brief: Significant ones
CF is a multisystem disease.
Lungs can lose function and be infected without doing the right things. Nutrition and liver function can be affected if your child does not eat well or take his supplements and enzymes. You will need to make sure you are consistent with the care that your child's specialists and doctors recommend. This can lead to better health and less hospitalization for your child.
