How does CF affect my sleep?

40% of people with CF report poor sleep quality. There is also evidence that when you have a flareup of your lung, your sleep may get worse.  Your oxygen levels may get worse during an exacerbation and this is most noticeable during sleep. Cough and medications may be a factor. Research studies are being done to learn more about CF and sleep quality.

Sleep can be examined using studies. If you have any questions about CF and sleep or to learn more, please be sure to ask your doctor or CF team member.
