NSPKU


Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a rare metabolic disorder. People with PKU cannot metabolise phenylalanine, an amino acid found in protein foods. This builds up to levels that are toxic to the brain. PKU is diagnosed by the “heel prick” new-born screening test.

PKU is a treatable condition. If not correctly treated it results in severe and irreversible brain damage. Treatment by restricted diet has been shown to be effective. People born with PKU who receive the correct treatment can now have the same educational and career goals as people without PKU. Also to find out more about PKU... https://www.nspku.org/about-pku/
