We are the PKU Association of Ireland.

PKU is the acronym for Phenylketonuria. PKU is a rare genetic metabolic disorder that is detected shortly after birth through the heel prick test.

You have probably never heard of us, that is because our numbers are small, but the impact of PKU is huge.

We exist to help and support those affected by PKU, and other metabolic disorders that can be managed just like PKU. We share tips, advice, stories, recipes and just generally support each other as we learn about this condition and help those affected full-fill their potential.

We also work hard to get the best possible care, be that through food available on the long term illness card or looking at new ways to treat the condition and trying to get access to these.

This site is here to act as a resource to update the PKU community on what is going on. If there is something you would like to share please let us know.
