Managing cystic fibrosis can feel overwhelming at times — but we’re here to help. Learn how to navigate life with CF below.
Regular physical activity and good nutrition are important — especially
when you have cystic fibrosis. By eating a high-calorie, high-fat diet,
taking vitamins and mineral supplements, and staying fit, you can more
effectively manage your CF and stay healthy.
As an adult with CF who is thinking about starting a family, there are many considerations related to your health, fertility, finances, and what life will be like as a parent. You can make an informed decision by learning about the different family building options and what parenting with CF could entail.
CF doesn't have to stop you from traveling to see the world or visit loved ones. With proper preparation and planning, taking care of your health while away from home may not be as hard as you think.
People with cystic fibrosis are living longer and more fulfilling lives, thanks in part to specialized CF care and a range of treatment options.
You can best manage your health when you know what to expect, what resources you can use, and a community of people with whom you can share your experiences.
CF Foundation Compass is a service that helps people with CF and their families with navigating insurance options, connecting to legal information and experts, finding available financial resources, and tackling other life issues.
