Two people with cystic fibrosis dating each other


Doctors diagnose most kids with CF by the time they are 3 years old, but if someone has a milder form of the disease, it may not be diagnosed until that person reaches the teen years.Babies are usually tested if they are born with an intestinal blockage called meconium ileus, which is more common in CF infants.The mucus is thicker than normal because CF affects cells in the epithelium (pronounced: eh-puh-THEE-lee-um), the layer of cells that lines the passages in the body's organs.In a person who does not have CF, the epithelial cells produce a thin, watery mucus that acts like a lubricant and helps protect the body's tissues. old has nasal polyps, frequent nausea, high blood pressure, acid reflux, chronic sinusitis, she's short for her age, had sinus surgery, a REALLY hard time breathing 24/7, a cough that gets worse after eating, etc.



The thicker mucus has trouble moving out of the lungs, so bacteria can remain and cause infections. CF patients need to be vigilant in protecting their health so that they don't get sick. We have a lot in common, and it may be that we get together as a couple. I'm a carrier of the disease, and one uncle and cousin have it within my family. What is the likelihood that if I marry this girl my children would inherit cystic fibrosis? The reason I ask is that one of my friends suffers from it. Are there support groups where they can all sit together and talk. I read a story off a news website about a married couple who both have cystic fibrosis. Two people with this affliction can be together, but can't mate. That is to say, it is not something you can 'catch' like aids. The sad but true news is that cystic fibrosis patients do pose a threat to each other. Are there support groups where they can all sit together and talk. I read a story off a news website about a married couple who both have cystic fibrosis.

Okay those are all my questions for now You are a tad off base.
