Vitamins and Minerals in Cystic Fibrosis

Vitamins and minerals are needed for the normal growth, function, and health of our bodies. People with CF need extra vitamins and minerals for good health.  It can be difficult to meet these needs because of malabsorption, increased needs, and a poor appetite especially during times of illness.  For more information, see this information published by the CF Dietitians across Canada.
