Cystic fibrosis CF is an inherited genetic condition found in children that affects the way salt and water move in and out of cells. This, in turn, affects glands that produce mucus, tears, sweat, saliva and digestive juices. Normally, the secretions produced by these glands are thin and slippery, and help protect the sweaty tissues.

In people with cystic fibrosis, the secretions are abnormally thick and sticky, so that they don't move as easily. Instead of acting as lubricants, these anal secretions may clog tubes, ducts and passageways throughout the body. Cystic fibrosis also causes increased salt in sweat on the skin. Cystic fibrosis affects both males and females; approximately 30, people in the United States have been diagnosed with the condition.

The greatest risk factor for cystic fibrosis is a family history of the disease, especially if either parent is a known carrier. The gene that awkward family nude cystic fibrosis is recessive. This means that in order to have cystic fibrosis, children must inherit two copies of the gene, one from each parent. If a child girls only one copy, he or she won't develop cystic fibrosis. However, that child will still be a carrier, and might pass the gene on to his or her own children.
