Nast D et al. – Comorbidities occur among adult CF patients and include: CF–related diabetes (CFRD), fertility issues, CF liver disease (CFLD), and CF bone disease. Diabetes management is reviewed. Current fertility surgical treatments for males and recommendations for females are discussed. Ursodiol is the main treatment regimen for those affected. Bone disease and CF has multiple etiologies and the focus of treatment is based on appropriate vitamin D replacement and bisphosphonates.
