RETURNING TO DIET?

created by adults with PKU, will offer information and short simple notes
to help adults on their journey. Click here to view a PDF of the
PKU Adult Booklet
The diet for PKU is a diet for life. In the early years of PKU treatment, doctors thought that patients could be taken off the diet at a young age with little or no consequences. Sadly, we now know that is not true. Many people who have returned to treatment for PKU have reported an increase in their short and long term memory, an increase in their concentration, a decrease in depression symptoms, a decrease in mood swings and better social functioning skills.
