Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease with significant nutrition-related implications. The past few decades have seen substantial improvements in CF treatment, and consequently in life expectancy. Nutrition therapy has been integral to these improvements.
Historically, CF nutrition has focused on addressing nutritional deficit—a focus which continues. As the survival rate of people with CF has increased, there has been a corresponding increased prevalence of chronic conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer, thus expanding the scope of nutrition treatment.
Just as nutrition has been a key factor in enhancing longevity in CF to date, it continues to have an integral role in meeting future challenges in the treatment of the complexities of this disease and its comorbidities.
Based on your insights and expertise in this field, we hope you will consider contributing either evidence-based original research or a critical review for this upcoming Special Issue.
