28th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

S20: NRS-NTR: pH in CF: Impact on Nutrition

Oct 11, 2014 10:30am ‐ Oct 11, 2014 12:20pm

Standard: $49.99

Description

This session will focus on concepts regarding pH modulation in cystic fibrosis. We will examine this in regards to maintenance of a healthy immune system, normal healthy gut flora and the microbiome; nutrition and enzyme utilization; and the effects of pharmacological management. Within the CF population and their frequent need for medications and antibiotics, as well as PERT, we now understand the significance of pH modulation for minimizing the effects of malabsorption and subsequent malnutrition. It is imperative that we strive for interventions that will maximize multi-system functions to minimize long-term concerns and maximize overall health.
