  • Cystic fibrosis (CF), also known as mucoviscidosis, is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys and intestine.[1][2] Long-term issues include difficulty breathing and coughing up sputum as a result of frequent lung infections.
  • Other symptoms include sinus infections, poor growth, fatty stool, clubbing of the finger and toes, and infertility in males among others.
  • Different people may have different degrees of symptoms.
  • Occurance: 1 in 30,000 in US, 1 in 1,300 in Ireland
  • Primarily genetic, incureable
  • Congenitally unable to process Vitamin K very well - wonder if vitamin K injections would help
  • "While infants born with it 70 years ago would have been unlikely to live beyond their first year, infants today are likely to live well into adulthood"
  • "Many people with CF are on one or more antibiotics at all times, . . . "
