Abstract

Barriers to successful outcome for cystic fibrosis (CF) therapies can include distance from a CF care center, co-morbid conditions that require individualized alterations to the prescribed treatment, and patient-provider interactions, among others. We present the case of a 21-month-old female with CF for whom modifications of an efficacious behavioral and nutrition treatment were made due to food allergies and distance from the CF care center. She was classified as at-risk nutritionally. Following treatment a significant increase in energy intake (calories) was observed in addition to her meeting weight and height growth rates for a child of this age and gender who is growing normally at the 50th percentile.
