Hello, folks. My best friend’s kid has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. I know that this disease is genetically determined and that prognosis is serious. Can anyone tell me how long life expectancy is for the sufferers from this disease? Your replies will be more than welcomed. Thanks in advance. Bye!

Hello, there. Cystic fibrosis is indeed determined by genetic disorder. It mostly affects lungs and pancreas. The glands that secrete mucous do not function properly. This mucous accumulates in the ducts of these glands. Life expectancy for the people in US for 2008 was 37.4. In Canada this value is even higher. It was 47.4 in 2007. I hope this helps. Good luck!
