Saskatchewan Adult PKU Program
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a rare inherited disorder that affects one in 12,000 children born in Canada. The treatment of PKU requires lifelong management of phenylalanine (phe) levels through diet. If left untreated, higher levels of phe can cause damage to the brain and intellectual disability.
The provincial PKU clinic is located at the Alvin Buckwold Child Development Program in Saskatoon. The clinic provides a family-centered, interdisciplinary service which includes diagnosis, assessment, nutrition management and genetic counseling.
