3 Treatment Categories Cystic Fibrosis
According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, because the severity and types of CF symptoms can vary from person to person, treatment therapies are individualized to suit each patient’s need.
Every day, CF patients complete a combination of the following therapies:
1. Airway clearance
This is necessary in order to help loosen and get rid of some of the mucus that builds up in the lungs.
2. Inhaled medicines
These medicines are used to open the airways or thin the mucus.
3. Pancreatic enzyme supplement
These capsules help improve the absorption of vital nutrients.
