1 doctor agrees
In brief: No
Clean helps & dust free helps for any kid.
To some extent this ideal is relative and perfection on either point is unrealistic. With a stable hygienic environment, close monitoring by a CF center, & proper nutrition, these kids do well.Your CF center should have guidelines for healthy living they will share with you during your regular followups.
