"Inherited" means the disease is passed from parents to children through genes.
People who have CF inherit two faulty genes for the disease -- one from each parent.
Cystic fibrosis (SIS-tik fi-BRO-sis), or CF, is an inherited disease of the secretory (see-KREH-tor-ee) glands.
Secretory glands include glands that make mucus and sweat.
The parents likely don't have the disease themselves.
