You may not realize this, but one of the challenges for patients with Cystic Fibrosis is salt loss due to its root defect: a problem with the sodium ion exchange in the mucous membranes. Our son (who is 8 now) struggled with horrible leg cramps for many years, especially when he would run and play, or simply sweat in the Arizona heat. Gatorade®* and bananas were OK, but at his size, he could not drink the amount necessary to keep his electrolyte levels up. That was before we found elete. Now, we can adjust the amount of electrolytes he receives based on the situation. I am trying to find a good way to get the word out to CF patients and their parents about this product.
