Question on food oils
Hello , I am currently asking a lot of questions about alimentary oils. Can CF people consume cold-extracted oils (rather used by small specialized companies) compared to refined, inert and virtually unalterable oils? Can we consume unrefined oils, cold extracted oils or is there a risk of developing germs and bacteria in these products that would be dangerous to us? Are the food hygiene standards of its small structures (sometimes traditional) adapted to our pathology? Thank you for your reply, cordially

Reverse osmosis device
Dear expert team, we are planning to install in our home a reverse osmosis filter device. There are two alternatives offered: 1. Standard device, that uses a 10 liter storage, that is normally filled always automatically and from which the rinsed water can be taken out quickly 2. „Direct flow“ device, without storage, that provides rinsed water about 1 to 1,5 litres per minute, therefore less comfortable Question: are there any concerns if our CF grandchild is visiting us and have both devices to be judged differently concerning the risk of contamination with germs? What would you recommend? Many thanks for your advice.
Haemophilus influenzae
My daughter, 1,5 years old suffers from CF and has now for the first time Haemophilus influenzae in the throat swab. Our treating CF physician regards it as a harmless germ, it is therefore not treated at the moment. I would like to have a second opinion. Of course, we do not want to give antibiotics if it is not necessary, however she suffers a lot from the increased mucus, she coughs therefore much until she vomits (what we did not experienced so far) and she eats less. We inhale more frequent with 3% saline solution. I do not know, what to do, as a bronchitis or pneumonia is not desirable, either. My question is, would you treat the germ and if not, does it disappear itself? Many thanks
Prescription of Orkambi® not possible in Ireland
Hallo, my boss in Ireland is a father of a 15-year-old girl with CF. Unfortunately Orkambi® is not licensed in Ireland. Is there a possiblity to get it in Germany for her? What does he has to do to get it? Is private insurance enough or do you have to live in Germany, paying a german health insurance? How much are the costs of treatment per year for it? Thank you, N.

CF mutation carriers
My wife and I are carriers of a CF mutation. Four years ago my wife was pregnant and she and I were tested and found positive. Afterwards, since the pregnancy was advanced, the doctor took a sample from the fetus, which was found to be just fine, not even a carrier. My wife is now pregnant for the second time. What testing must we do to find out if the fetus suffers from CF?
