For those of you interested in the new nutritional guidelines which were launched at this year’s Australian CF conference you can download a copy of them here. [This is the final draft but final copy not yet available online].
You’ll see these new guidelines not only promote a healthier more wholistic diet than previous CF recommendations. Moving away from any fat and sugar to make the calories add up – to an emphasis on good fats and heart health where possible. The guidelines also touch on vitamins and supplements – namely glutathione, probiotics to name a few emerging areas which have not been formally addressed before.
