Cystic Fibrosis is a disorder of the cell membranes, causing them to produce too much mucus, and so this tends to block up the lungs, making it difficult for the person to breathe. People with this condition often have to have breathing exercises to shift excess mucus. It can be inherited if two recessive genes are combined.
Cystic Fibrosis mainly affects the Lungs, gut and Pancreas.

Cystic Fibroses is a common disease especially in Caucasian populations that usually appears in early childhood. It involves functional disorder of the exocrine glands, and is marked especially by faulty digestion due to a deficiency of pancreatic enzymes, by difficulty in breathing due to mucus accumulation in airways, and by excessive loss of salt in the sweat.
Also called Fibrocystic Disease of the Pancreas, and Mucoviscidosis
