Treatment plans help people with cystic fibrosis maintain their health so they can live longer, more fulfilling lives. Although every treatment plan is unique, comprehensive CF treatment plans usually include quarterly visits to a CF care center and the following components: airway clearance techniques; oral, inhaled, and nebulized medications; nutrition therapies; and a fitness plan.
Because cystic fibrosis is a complex disease, it requires a team approach with you or your child at the center. Your CF care team includes a group of CF health care professionals who partner with you to provide specialized, comprehensive CF care.
Daily CF treatments take time, patience and persistence. But the benefits of managing your treatment plan outweigh the drawbacks so that you can achieve more of your personal goals.
