Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. CF causes the body to produce thick, sticky mucus, which clogs the lungs. This abnormal mucus leads to chronic lung infections and lung damage, and also interferes with digestion. The symptoms of CF are diverse, vary in severity, and are often confused with pneumonia and asthma. The sweat test diagnoses CF by measuring the amount of salt in the sweat. An abnormally high salt level indicates CF.
