Which specialist would a person see if they had cystic fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is a disease that is inherited and is now used as one of the screening tests for fetal health monitoring. CF is a severe disease that causes destruction to the cells which produce mucus, sweat, and digestive liquids. They are normally secreted as a thin and slippery liquid but people with CF have very thick secretions. This causes ducts, tubes, and passages throughout the body to become clogged, especially in the lungs. People with CF need daily care but can live normal lives and go to school and work. They typically live short lives.

Respiratory signs of CF include:

  • A cough with thick mucus
  • Recurring sinusitis
  • Wheezing and exercise intolerance
  • Recurring lung infections
  • Inflammation of the nasal passages

Digestive symptoms include:

  • Greasy stools which are foul smelling
  • Poor growth and weight gain
  • Intestinal blockage in a newborn
  • Severe constipation

Digestive complications also come with nutritional deficiencies, diabetes, liver disease, intestinal obstruction, and distal intestinal obstructive system. As well as infertility in men and reduced fertility in women.

Dealing with CF can also cause patients to suffer from mental health problems. As you can see there are several specialist physicians that a patient with cystic fibrosis would see. It would be a comprehensive team of doctors working together. The main practitioner is a pulmonologist though. They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of lung and respiratory conditions.
