The trio talks about the evolution of cystic fibrosis nutrition. The podcast starts with the group talking about the “old days” of CF nutrition when any and all high calorie diets were pushed on patients. Tiffany talks about daily trips to In-N-Out burger, while Gunnar and Lea talk about after school milkshakes. The trio then discusses how CF nutrition has evolved over time, to the point where we now look at WHERE our calories are coming from. Gunnar notes that he didn’t have an appreciation for CF nutrition until he saw the benefits of added weight in the months following his g-tube surgery. Tiffany agrees, and talks about her experience with a g-tube immediately following transplant, plus some of her dietary restrictions that come along with transplant.
