Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a 24 year old female with CF and CFRD. My gene mutation is Double Delta F508 - I have very mild lung involvement (have only been hospitilized and on IVs once when I was 15 for plugs). I've had a severe episode of hemoptysis which required a pulmonary embolization two years ago, and I've been doing great ever since. I do have digestive issues - on enzymes for every meal, but other then that, I have no other issues i.e. sinus, gallbladder, bowel, etc. Looking forward to reading about what these boards are all about.
