: Hi my cousin died at age 19 from cf and now my 4yr old nephew has it. I am a personal trainer and I am researching the benefits of exercise and nutrition for cf patients. If anyone has any input or positive life experiences please let me know. Thank You

I am a 32 year old stay at home Mom with CF. Exercise is very beneficial for CF patients, but not all can do any regular routine. I personally would love to get into a routine, but we havent been able to find something that I dont exert myself with. Strain & exertion on my part tends to aggrivate the Hemoptysis (bleeding) of my lungs. My doctors have an exercise room within the hospital so when patients get admitted they can keep their routines. Again it is good, but routines need to be molded to the persons needs & abilities. Good Luck!
