The impact of nutrition in cystic fibrosis: a review

The impact of nutrition in cystic fibrosis: a review

A high energy intake, compensating for malabsorption, and the energy cost of lung disease, lung infection and the underlying metabolic abnormality, is required to ensure normal growth in patients with cystic fibrosis. This goal can be readily achieved by adherence to a high-quantity, normally balanced diet (with 40% of the energy as triglycerides of long-chain fatty acids).
