This comprehensive text fulfills an unmet need for practitioners who treat patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) by providing data-driven advice concerning the implementation of nutritional interventions to CF patients from infancy to adulthood. Nutritional therapies have been key early interventions, and remain central to the well-being and survival of patients with cystic fibrosis. The nature of the disease causes significant alterations in a patient’s ability to process and assimilate nutrients and contribute to higher metabolic demands throughout a patient’s life. This volume provides an introduction to cystic fibrosis and nutritional assessments and serves as an extensive guide to the nutritional monitoring and management of patients with cystic fibrosis, including special populations within cystic fibrosis that require additional considerations. Unique chapters in this volume include nutrition assessments for adult and obese CF patients and four chapters on specific common co-morbidities for cystic fibrosis patients: pancreatic insufficiency, liver disease, gastrointestinal complications, and cystic fibrosis related diabetes mellitus. Written by experts in the field, Nutrition in Cystic Fibrosis is designed as a resource for physicians, nurses, dietitians and other medical providers who deliver care for patients with cystic fibrosis.
