National Society for Phenylketonuria (NSPKU)

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a rare inherited condition in which there is a build up of phenylalanine in the body. Phenylalanine is a natural substance; it is a building block of protein. PKU is looked for in all newborns in the United Kingdom by measuring phenylalanine levels in the heel-prick blood test. All babies should have this test as it allows treatment to start early in life.

The National Society for Phenylketonuria (NSPKU) offers help and support for people with phenylketonuria, their families and carers.
