I am wondering if anyone knows any information ore personal knowledge on CF and the effects of exercise either positive or negative. Also if by participating in exercise does CF get better worse or no change?
Hi Gemma, Thanks so much for the welcome to healing well! I agree that exercise is the best thing for anyone including people with cf. From the research I have been doing on my own about cf and exercise I came across a study which focused on long term aerobic exercise effect in people who have cf, most of the benefits were the same as the none cf population such as increased peak oxygen consumption however it did highlight something that did shock me which was, greater mucus clearance and temporary increase or delayed decline in some indices of pulmonary function, have you experienced that or know why that may take place?
HI Jess, I am assuming you are part of the healthier persons with CF and able to have a normal aerobic fitness and normal cardio respiratory responses to a single session of exercise. And you are clearly getting in more than the minimum recommended amount of 3-5 days per week and more than 2000kcal/per week expended, which is so good for your body and mind.
