Is good to work outside while having cystic fibrosis?

CF and environment. Depending on the severity of your cf, leading an active healthy lifestyle outside is not a fantasy. Common sense will dictate avoidance germs by simple hand hygiene (wash, wipe, alcohol base hand gels). Knowing your CF treatment plan as per your pulmonologist/specialist is important for slowing down the progression/maintaining a more resilient defense against bacterial/chronic lung infection.
Sure. It is almost always good to work outside, as long as you use sun screen and wear a hat to keep the sun off. If cold air (or polluted air) causes you to have bronchospasm, wait for a wamrer day or a non red air day. Working outside won't make you sicker unless you don't do your airway clearance when you are outside.

Variable. CF newborn screening programs can detect CF early on, so that treatment can be initiated earlier. If an infant begins to have symptoms consistent with cf, the test should be repeated even if the screening was negative at birth. Symptoms can begin at any time and this depends on a number of factors, including the specific genetic mutation of the CF gene. I hope this helps. Read more...
