Brief Summary:
The purpose of this research study is to find out if the combined therapy lumacaftor-ivacaftor effects how people with cystic fibrosis respond to an oral glucose tolerance test, a test for diabetes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Cystic Fibrosis Drug: Lumacaftor-ivacaftor Other: OGTT Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This is a single center, open label study with crossover in patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Patients will have 2-3 visits at the Diabetes Center at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

The participants will have been previously screened clinically to make sure they are candidates for starting the combination drug, lumacaftor-ivacaftor. These patients will be contacted prior to their first visit to discuss enrollment in the study.

At the first study visit (Visit 1), the participant will come to the Diabetes Center after an overnight fast of at least 8 hours. The following will occur at this study visit: informed consent; brief medical history; weight and height; vital signs and blood pressure; blood draw for DNA extraction, and an extra research tube for storage; administration of 75g Glucola load as per a standard oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) protocol; and blood work for glucose and insulin at 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes after the glucose load. This will be scheduled at a time that is convenient to the patient, with an attempt to coordinate with the patient's visit to the CF clinic prior to starting lumacaftor-ivacaftor combination drug.

At the 2nd study visit (Visit 2), which will take place 3 months after starting the combination drug, the participant will again come to the Diabetes Center after an overnight fast of at least 8 hours. The participant will undergo a second OGTT as in the first visit. The 3rd study visit (Visit 3) will be 6 months after initiation of the drug, and will have a repeat administration of an OGTT. If a participant starts the combination drug before enrolling in the study, he/she can still participate in the study as long as he or she has had a clinical OGTT performed within 6 months of starting the combination drug. In these cases, the informed consent, brief medical history, weight and height and vital signs and blood pressure, as well as blood draw for DNA will occur on the Visit 2, which will be the first study visit for these participants. If a clinical OGTT had been performed prior to but within 6 months of starting the combination therapy, this OGTT can be used in analysis of the data, although will not have the full amount of data as the study OGTT.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lumacaftor Ivacaftor
Subjects will get an OGTT before and after starting the combination therapy lumacaftor-ivacaftor.
Drug: Lumacaftor-ivacaftor
Subjects who are planning on starting the combination therapy (lumacaftor-ivacaftor) will participate in OGTTs before and after starting the medication.
Other Name: Orkambi

Other: OGTT
A subject is given an oral glucose load and insulin and glucose measurements are taken at specified time periods.
Other Name: Oral Glucose tolerance test

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Fasting Glucose [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    This will be compared from baseline to 3 months after starting the medication

  2. Change in Fasting Glucose [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    This will compare baseline to 6 months after starting the medication

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Genetic risk score [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    We will examine how the OGTT data is dependent on genotype at variants associated with type 2 diabetes using a genetic risk score

  2. Pulmonary function test (PFT) FEV1 measurements [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    We will compare how PFT measurement of FEV1 are related to changes in OGTT

  3. Change in Fasting Insulin [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    This will be compared from baseline to 3 months after starting the medication

  4. Change in Fasting Insulin [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    This will be compared from baseline to 6 months after starting the medication
