The best you can do is prevent and control lung infections, loosen and remove thick, stick mucus from the lungs, treat a clog in the intestines, have enough nutrition, and prevent shortage of fluid in the body.
What would the treatments be?
There is no cure for cystic fibrosis, but treatment can be used to calm the symptoms or decrease the number of complications. The goal of the treatments is to lower the possibility of one getting worse or in other words, dying. Researchers are working towards finding a cure for the genetic disease. Like researching a drug, VX-770 so it can target the CFTR gene. I'm very sorry ma'am.
Is there a cure?
There is no way to prevent CF. It’s inherited, you can’t stop it from coming towards you or being a carrier/affected. The treatments can help you live a better life with CF, especially during ones in childhood.
Can it be prevented for my other children?
