The role of probiotics in the treatment of cystic fibrosis
More and more research results indicate the beneficial effects of the inclusion of probiotics in the treatment of patients with cystic fibrosis. There is information in the literature that taking probiotics reduces the number of pulmonary exacerbations in a patient and thus the number of days a patient spends in hospital during the year due to worsening of his / her condition. In addition, they support digestive processes and improve the functioning of the body’s immune system. The micro-organisms that deserve special attention in these cases are: m.in. : B. bifidum L. bulgaricus, L. acidophilus, and S. thermophile.
As in healthy infants, breast-feeding is recommended in children who are diagnosed with cystic fibrosis upon birth. Pediatricians report that breast milk is a treasure trove of naturally occurring enzymes. In addition, the mother’s food exhibits immunological properties, strengthening the immune system of the child.
