Aquagenic palmar wrinkling

Again, I think we as a CF community are so fortunate to have Mandy and all of her amazing research around treatments for CF. I have learned so much from her and this post is another testament to her dedication to the lives of all CFers.

As many of you know, I have been drinking green smoothies in an attempt to get more greens in my diet - I truly eat like a crazy teenager, which I know is not good for my health. I really love the smoothies and they taste wonderful.

A benefit I didn't realize I could expect from these wonderful smoothies is my aquagenic palmar wrinkling has disappeared. It took about 4 weeks of drinking the smoothies everyday, but it worked!

Now what exactly the health consequences are of this, we aren't sure. But we do know that those with CF and those who are CFTR carriers wrinkle much faster when submerged in water.

I'll continue to keep you all posted on any other exciting changes!
