Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes: an approach to diagnosis and management.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, 55455, USA.


Diabetes is a common complication of cystic fibrosis (CF). Because of evidence that it is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, prompt diagnosis and aggressive management of CF-related diabetes (CFRD) is important. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation held a consensus conference in 1998 to define the current standards for the diagnosis and care of this disease [Moran A, Hardin D, Rodman D et al. Diagnosis, screening, and management of CFRD: a consensus conference report. J Diabetes Res Clin Pract 1999: 45: 61-73]. This article reviews those recommendations, and presents the practical approach to the management of CFRD used at the University of Minnesota.
