Cystic Fibrosis-Related Diabetes Research Overview

Pediatric endocrinologist Malinda Wu discusses ongoing research at Johns Hopkins on cystic fibrosis-related diabetes during the 2023 North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference. Cystic fibrosis is most commonly known for causing lung disease, but it affects most organs in the body, including exocrine and endocrine functions of the pancreas. CF-related diabetes is associated with worse lung function, worse nutritional status and decreased survival. Prompt treatment with insulin can reverse these outcomes, which makes it important to detect cystic fibrosis-related diabetes early.
