The kid that lives in my neighborhood is diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. I don’t know much about this disease, but I would like to find out. What is life expectancy for people with this disease? I hope someone will know to answer to my post. It will mean a lot to me. Thanks, guys.

Hi, there. No one can tell for sure how long these people live. The average life expectancy was 32 in 2000. Nowadays is 37. This disease mostly affects lungs and pancreas. Mucus accumulates in pancreas channels and in lungs. This is the main problem in the disease. It is genetically determined. On the other hand, there are mild forms of the disease where the prognosis is better. Good luck!
