You will visit the clinic every three months (and more often if needed).
It is ideal to pre-order your medications two weeks prior to your CF visit. Contact the Pharmacist at 705-523-7100 x5511.
At each visit, we will complete a full health assessment, including your height, weight, vital signs. A throat swab or sputum sample will also be collected.
Every second visit after the age of six, a PFT (pulmonary function test) will be performed to assess your lung function capacity.
Blood work will be collected yearly to monitor your liver function, blood sugars, and vitamin levels. Chest x-rays will also be done yearly.
After the age of 10, an oral glucose intolerance test will be done yearly to check for CF-related diabetes.
