Early detection of Diagnose Cystic Fibrosis

Early detection

Early detection of cystic fibrosis can greatly affect the life of the patient. The disease is caused by a malformation in genes that causes a thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs. This causes breathing problems and other lung issues. Mucus that builds for a while without knowledge, can lead to worse health problems. If it is detected and treated from the beginning, patients are much healthier from the start. If the condition goes unnoticed and mucus continues to build, it will be harder to catch up once a diagnosis is made. It is up to healthcare providers of suspected patients to be educated on testing and approach. Pay attentions to results and symptoms to get these patients going on treatments as early as able.
