This disease causes the mucus, tears, and sweat of the patient to be considerably thick. However, the thickness of such mucus is determined by the severity of the patient’s Cystic Fibrosis. This mucus affects the breathing of those diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, and many have reported an additional trouble with digesting food. One is most likely to have Cystic Fibrosis if their families have a history of such a disease. Therefore, Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that is recessively passed down to proceeding generations.
