The European Guidelines for Phenylketonuria were recently published. These guidelines were developed by a group of 17 well known European PKU experts. The group was made up of biochemists, dietitians, metabolic paediatricians, metabolic adult physicians and psychologists.
In line with these new European Guidelines as of July 1st 2017, we are changing our target phenylalanine range to between 120 – 360 µmol/L for children aged 12 years and under, and between 120 – 600 µmol/L for children over 12 years. For women trying to conceive and during pregnancy (maternal PKU), the target phenylalanine range is between 120 – 360 µmol/L.
