Living with CF
Make a Plan to Stay Healthy
Most people with cystic fibrosis can lead active lives—depending upon the severity of their disease—with routine therapies and regular visits to your CF care center.
Knowledge is power. Knowing your CF is important to stay healthy. Staff at the CF Center of Idaho partners with CF to develop individual treatment plans. These plans typically include high-calorie, high-fat diets, therapies to loosen the clogged mucus from their airways, and mucus-thinning drugs and antibiotics when needed.
By following the treatment plan developed with the CF team, many people with CF can slow down the progression of their disease. A healthier body is better able to deal with bacteria and chronic lung infection.
The goal of the CF Center of Idaho staff is to help you lead a long, healthy life.
