Possibility Of Contracting If Adjacent To Cystic Fibrosis?
Hello ,, Are 2 people with cystic fibrosis not allowed to close together ?? Thank you ..
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously I want to confirm in advance what you mean by being close together? Do you mean contacting skin (such as shaking hands, hugging), talking close or kissing, or do you mean getting married?
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease in which there is a disruption in the secretion of body fluids, including secretion of mucus in the airways, secretions of enzymes in the digestive tract, and secretions of fluids in the reproductive tract. Because it is a genetic disease, basically this disease will not be transmitted by direct contact (skin to skin contact or contact with body fluids). Talking close together, kissing, using cutlery together also will not transmit this disease to others. This disease can only be passed on from parents to children with an autosomal recessive pattern of decline.
However, you need to know that people with cystic fibrosis often experience recurrent airway infections and are very susceptible to airway infections. Therefore, if you are experiencing an airway infection, you are strongly discouraged from being close to other cystic fibrosis sufferers, because that person can also get an airway infection from you and vice versa.
If you mean being close is marriage, then as mentioned above, cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that can be inherited. A person can suffer from cystic fibrosis only if he has a pair of cystic fibrosis genes. If one of the genes that is owned is a healthy gene, the person will not show symptoms of cystic fibrosis, but only be a carrier (carrier) of the gene alone. If two people with cystic fibrosis get married, then all of their offspring will certainly suffer from cystic fibrosis too. This condition is certainly not expected to occur in children, so if a cystic fibrosis sufferer wants to marry another cystic fibrosis sufferer, very careful consideration is needed.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
