Treatment for Cystic Fibrosis Symptoms Found

Recommend to others!

Medical researchers have made a breakthrough discovery in the field of medicine by finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, which is a genetic disease affecting the pulmonary system of the body. The research had been initiated by HHS’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the researchers are optimistic about the findings, though no direct connection was found between the human growth hormone and Cystic Fibrosis.

The disease in context is contracted in early childhood and leads to stunted growth. The common signs and symptoms of it are inadequate weight gain, short height, difficulty in breathing, pulmonary infections and saline skin. The patient affected with Cystic Fibrosis often fails to complete a regular lifecycle as the disease leads to early demise.

The research which has been titles ‘Effectiveness of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone (rhGH) in the Treatment of
Patients with Cystic Fibrosis’ bases its discovery on the premise that since the human growth hormone leads to an increase in weight and height of an individual, it may also assist in the treatment of pulmonary infections and strengthening of bones. But what still remains a mystery is that there is no assurance as to whether the hormone will lead to an increase in the lifecycle of the patient or not. Moreover, it was also found that with time the use of human growth hormone leads to an increase in the level of blood sugar level culminating in development of diabetes mellitus in the patient.
