  1. 1. Phenylketonuria and other inherited metabolic disorders<br />Kathleen Williams<br />Diabetes and Obesity Specialist Dietitian<br />South Devon Healthcare<br />
  2. 2. Phenylketonuria – an autosomal recessive disorder caused by a deficiency of phenylalanine hydroxylase<br />Leads to increased blood phenylalanine<br />Hyperphenylalaninaemia leads to neurotoxicity<br />1:4 incidence<br />Prevalence 1/10,000<br />Guthrie Test <br />Phenylketonuria<br />
  3. 3. Phenylketonuria (PKU)<br />
  4. 4. Classical – levels >1200 mcmol/l<br />Moderate – levels >600 – 1200 mcmol/l<br />Mild - >400 mcmol/l<br />Normal Phe level – 120 -600mcmol/l<br />Untreated PKU – mental retardation, hyperactive behaviour with autistic features, seizures<br />
  5. 5. Restrict dietary Phe<br />Allocate an allowance of Phe containing foods<br />Provide a Phe free amino acid substitute<br />Maintain energy intake with low protein foods<br />Ensure mineral and vitamin intake adequate<br />Dietary Treatment of PKU<br />
