Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program
Our team specializes in diagnosing, managing, treating, and researching cystic fibrosis. Our care teams are comprehensive and include nurses, registered dieticians, physical therapists, social workers, and respiratory cystic fibrosis specialists. We collaborate closely with our colleagues in the Yale Medicine Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Center to assist adolescents and young adults in the transition from pediatric to adult care.
In recognition of our commitment and accomplishments in improving care for people with cystic fibrosis, our program received a Quality Care Award from the national Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Our services include sweat testing and blood testing for all known mutations related to cystic fibrosis. We offer a full range of treatments for all complications related cystic fibrosis, including those involving the respiratory, sinus, digestive, endocrine, and reproductive systems.
Patients have access to comprehensive nutrition counseling and care, including pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy, screening for vitamin deficiencies, and the repletion of those vitamins. We also help patients manage cystic fibrosis lung disease with mucus clearance techniques, mucolytics, and preventive therapy for patients infected with pseudomonas.
