Why the Studies are Important:

Study Rationale

Because CFRD adds additional medical burden to individuals with CF we are striving to better understand the disease through a number of ongoing studies. These studies aim to better understand both the reasons CFRD develops and the best methods for detecting and screening for the disease.

We hope to:

  • Improve screening
  • Prevent or slow the progression of the disease
  • Better define when when treatment of insulin deficiency should begin
