Cystic Fibrosis is the most commonly inherited autosomal condition in Caucasians, affecting over 30 thousand Americans and growing. Due to medical and nutritional advancements and interventions, nearly half of the population with CF is living into adulthood. Understanding the role nutrition plays on health outcomes in CF has never been more imperative for all dietitians, regardless of specialty.
The purpose of this session is to provide an overview of the condition, understand basic medical nutrition therapy for the pediatric and adult CF population, and discuss the nutritionally relevant comorbidities specific to the disease. Participants will be asked to engage in the session by responding to real-life case study scenarios. At the end of the session, participants will be provided with resources to continue and advance their learning.
