WHAT IS CF-RELATED DIABETES?

CF Diabetes is unique and differs from Type I and Type II Diabetes. It can be the results of both insulin sensitivity and insulin resistance. Excess mucous may block and eventually scar pancreatic ducts, which causes a problem with the secretion on insulin. The pancreas stops producing the normal amounts of insulin and there is a delay in the release resulting in the person becoming insulin deficient.

WHAT WE DO

The UK CF Diabetes group was founded in 2016. Since its inception, we have provided annual study days and networking opportunities for any health care professional working with CF Diabetes patients and have worked with the CF Trust to update current consensus documents.
