Cystic fibrosis

Mucus that is abnormally thick and sticky in people with cystic fibrosis. Those with cystic fibrosis may also have digestive problems. Meconium ileus, a blockage of the intestine that occurs shortly after birth, is present in some affected babies. A insulin shortage in adolescence or adulthood can cause a disorder of diabetes called cystic fibrosis-related diabetes mellitus. Cystic fibrosis used to be thought of as a life-threatening disorder. Many people with cystic fibrosis now live long into adulthood, thanks to improved treatments and more effective ways to handle the condition. Most men with cystic fibrosis have congenital bilateral absence of the vaping deferens, a condition in which the tubes that carry sperm are blocked by mucus and do not grow properly. Without going through fertility therapy, CBAVD men are unable to father children. Women with cystic fibrosis may have trouble during pregnancy.

Congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens

When the tubes that carry sperm out of the testes fail to grow properly in males, there is a congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens. Cystic fibrosis causes progressive respiratory disease and persistent digestive problems. Many men with congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens do not have the other characteristic characteristics of cystic fibrosis; however, some men with this condition may experience mild respiratory or digestive difficulties.
