Cystic fibrosis nutrition - Chewing the fat

Survival data for successive birth cohorts of cystic fibrosis infants born in the twentieth century have shown consistent improvements. More recent UK and US data suggest a plateau in improvements for clinically relevant outcomes. Better treatment of malnutrition has arguably been the most important advance in CF care, but despite this nearly a half of the UK CF population has a sub-optimal BMI. Nutritional decline typically occurs in late childhood and early adult life. Addressing poor adherence and more targeted multi-disciplinary interventions to prevent or reverse this pattern are key to achieving better outcomes for CF patients in the future.

Abstract

Survival data for successive birth cohorts of cystic fibrosis infants born in the twentieth century have shown consistent improvements. More recent UK and US data suggest a plateau in improvements for clinically relevant outcomes. Better treatment of malnutrition has arguably been the most important advance in CF care, but despite this nearly a half of the UK CF population has a sub-optimal BMI. Nutritional decline typically occurs in late childhood and early adult life. Addressing poor adherence and more targeted multi-disciplinary interventions to prevent or reverse this pattern are key to achieving better outcomes for CF patients in the future.
