Phenylketonuria (PKU)


Phenylketonuria (PKU) - Better Health Channel -open

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a genetic disorder. It occurs when the body cannot break down a substance in food, called phenylalanine. As phenylalanine builds up in the blood, it causes brain damage. Early detection and intervention with a special diet can prevent intellectual disability and result in normal growth and development.
