Project for Kiriazis
When it comes time to eat, I have to make sure I eat a high calorie, high fat diet to meet the greater energy needed just to breathe.
I also have to see a doctor and/or therapist at least once a week.
I also have to work out often in order to keep in good health and out of the hospital.
When its time for bed, I repeat my breathing exercises and I also take inhaled antibiotics before going to bed.
Unfortunately, the life expectancy for someone with CF is 37. However, scientists are working to create new therapies and treatments and to find a cure.
