Cystic Fibrosis affects the cells in your body that make mucus, sweat and digestive fluids. Normally these are very thin and slippery to keep systems in your body running smoothly. But if you have Cystic Fibrosis, they become thick and glue like. This blocks the tubes and ducts throughout your body. Over time, mucus builds up inside your airway. This makes a struggle. The mucus traps germs and leads to infections. It can also cause severe lung damage like cysts (fluid-filled sacs) and fibrosis (scar tissue). That's how Cystic Fibrosis got its name.
