NIM – PKU Lunch Talk

Helen McCune, a registered dietitian who specializes in metabolic disorders, gave a presentation about nutrition intervention and the role of an RD on the patient care team for patients with PKU. She went over the PKU diet, why its necessary, and the consequences if it is not followed properly. She also gave us insight on patient struggles and successes. We even had a “test tasting” with low-Phe foods and drinks!
