In brief: Yes.
Although the complications of cystic fibrosis are treatable, and although the available treatments are helpful, the disorder shortens the normal life expectancy.

In brief: Life is different
100% of people die.
People with this condition have a variable life expectancy and face many more problems than the average person. Life includes close collaboration between docs at home and a specialty center. Life includes school, a profession, and many of the same challenges everyone else has. Whether they die in a car crash at 30 or from complications of the disease at 50, they do live a life.
