- The first and main cause of this disease is the genetic factor, as it is transmitted from parents to children automatically if both parents have the disease, or one of them, and in this case the disease appears on the child immediately after his birth.
- if the parents are carriers of the gene that occurred in the genetic mutation without any symptoms , that means that they are healthy carriers, then the son does not necessarily contract the disease, but inevitably he will also be the carrier of the gene responsible for the disease.
- The gene responsible for cystic fibrosis produces a protein that controls water and salts inside and outside the cell, which causes a defect in this system and leads to the formation of that sticky mucus that accumulates in various organs of the body, especially the lungs and pancreas, and thus symptoms appear on the patient that may reach Death, therefore, early diagnosis and necessary measures must be taken.
