What Healthy People May Not Realize About Cystic Fibrosis

"Difficulty gaining weight is not a good thing."

Individuals who are healthy may not think that not being able to gain weight is a problem but in reality, it is. “Trust me, when the lack of weight gain is because of nausea, disinterest in food, burning too many calories breathing, energy spent fighting infections, and other digestive issues, you don’t want that problem. Not being able to get out of bed because you’re too malnourished isn’t funny, and neither is being rejected from a life-saving transplant because you don’t weigh enough” stated Dell.
