CF Specific Vitamins

People with CF typically need additional vitamins to help maintain their health, and to make sure they’re getting the necessary nutrients/vitamins that they may not be absorbing (cff.org).  Everyone, CF or no CF, needs vitamins to stay healthy, but because CF causes vitamins to not be absorbed properly it’s important that CF patients do take a supplement if they cannot get enough individual vitamins from other sources.  Pharmaceutical companies work to create special vitamins that have the extra nutrients CF patients need, and there are some different choices on the market.  AquaDEKS, which is what Judith was taking previously, is an example of one of the vitamins on the market.
