Storyboard Text

  • Yes you do, usually we call it fibrocystic disease of pancreas, cystic fibrosis of pancreas, mucoviscidosis, or CF. This was caused by the mutations in your CFTR ( Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator ) gene. It makes the protein of your body, which controls the movement of the salt and water in and out of your body’s cells. It makes your protein not work too well which causes salty sweat and very chuncky, sticky mucus.
  • Do I have cystic fibrosis? How was this caused?
  • She does have some of the symptoms like wheezing, thick mucus, tissue inside her nose, and tiredness. It's also likely that she had it too, both females and males can be affected with it and it's common in the white population. Plus due to the tests her chromosome 7 is affected which is one of the 23 genes that offsprings inherit from their parents. We have to call in her mother.
  • She inherited it because she inherited two copies of the detective CF gene ,which is one copy from each parent. Both parents would have to have at least 1 copy of the detective gene. It's a recessive disorder caused by mutations in the CFTR gene. So you also have at least 1 copy of the gene.
  • But how did she inherit it?
