Thank you for your question. The average life expectancy for a person born with cystic fibrosis at present is 35 years of age. This will continue as better treatment and management become available over the years. With disease like liver cirrhosis and diabetes, life expectancy can be effected, but if these diseases are treated and managed by an expert medical team, then this may not have a direct effect.
