Can Better Nutrition Slow Progression of Cystic Fibrosis?

The importance of nutrition guidance

Whether you have CF or not, we all like to hear how our peers are handling their nutrition and what they are eating. Often, we try what they try, and we value their input. It is great to have people like this in your life. When it comes to CF and nutrition, it is important to remember that everyone is different. It is important to work with a Registered Dietician and your healthcare provider to come up with a nutrition plan that will best suit your needs. Your healthcare team will be able to evaluate what will work best for you as an individual. Having an awareness of your body’s normal functioning, can help you recognize when things are going wrong. It is important to share these signs with your provider and healthcare team no matter how sensitive the topic may be. They will use this information along and their collective expertise to restructure your nutrition plan as needed.
