Yes, I’m a cystic fibrosis patient and will be forever grateful that I can eat like a normal human being again. Despite all the pain, the constant diet alterations, and the daily struggles, I take a lot of pride in my condition.
A study from the University of Florida showed that while nearly 90% of those with cystic fibrosis are able to have a normal life if they get the right treatment, only 25% are able to keep it that way. The reason for this is the fact that the treatments have to work for them to work. If they don’t they won’t survive. So, if you have cystic fibrosis and you have no other options, you have to make the most of it.
To be honest, this is really a new area of medicine. I don’t know if you know of any other disease that can be cured, but it seems like many people with cystic fibrosis have a very hard time getting any cure. And a huge part of that is that you have to be very careful with what you eat. I know that you’re on the lookout for more people around here who are able to get their hands on some sort of cure.
You can’t get cystic fibrosis as a baby or even as an adult because it’s a genetic disease. It’s not that youre sick in the sense that you have to have a transplant to be healthy. Rather youre sick because you’re too fat. You have to restrict your diet to keep your fat cells burning and your organs functioning. But because youre fat, youve got a much easier time gaining weight than a normal person.
The diet cystic fibrosis cure is the one that sounds the most ridiculous and scary. It basically boils down to eating less and exercising more. Sounds like a great idea until you realize that you can’t eat less because youll need to eat more to stay in shape. In a perfect world you could eat whatever you want and exercise as much as you want, but in the real world you’re not going to eat crap if you want to be thin.
