Unhappy cf gene and emphysemia

My friend is the carrier of cf and two of her children are also carriers, one of her children has a child with cystic fibrosis .
my question, my friend and her oldest son, both, have been diagnosed with emphysemia,both smoke but neither gets the flue or much congestion problems. yet both had xrays that showed copd.
Could this be related to the cf gene?

thank you
Star
