Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Cystic Fibrosis

You will meet with the care team (physicians, CF care coordinator, nurses, respiratory therapists, nutritionist, and social worker) who will explain the condition, map out a CF care strategy, and discuss resources. Here are some questions to consider when talking to your doctor about your diagnosis, as well as trying to manage the disease throughout your lifetime.

  • Can my child with CF be around another child with CF?
  • Can a lung transplant cure CF?
  • What medication does my child need and are there any side-effects?
  • Do people with CF need their treatment daily or can they skip days?
