If you’re managing phenylketonuria (PKU) or another condition by following a low protein diet, the right nutrition can help you stay healthy and get the most out of life. We call it feeding your possible.
Whether you are going away for a short local break or travelling overseas, with a little organisation and forward planning there is nothing to stop you from having a great holiday.
Friends can be a great source of support. Deciding to tell people that you have PKU is a personal decision. New friends won’t be able to tell that you have PKU, however they may notice your special diet and ask questions. Finding ways to explain PKU to friends can help you adjust to new situations and help people understand your condition.FeaturedTeens
Being a teen with PKU can have its ups and downs. You need to manage your diet and you may also have to deal with lots of outside pressures too. You may be confronted with many types of risky behaviour. Always remember your future health is the most important thing, so don’t give in to the pressure to ‘fit in’. Talk to the people you trust about how you feel. It really can make a huge difference.FeaturedTeens
