Phenylketonuria (PKU) App
Metabolic Diet App
is a genetic disorder caused by a deficiency in phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme resulting in high phenylalanine (Phe) concentrations in the blood and brain.
Since the 1960’s a Phe-restricted and Tyr-supplemented diet has been the primary medical therapy for people living with PKU.
This App is designed to support families and children with PKU on phenylalanine restricted diets.
