As a PKU adult, you are in a different stage in life and, frankly, many of the PKU resources available seemed to be geared to children. Been there, done that. But take heart: Georgia PKU Connect consists of other PKU adults, parents, relatives, children and we are here to assist you in your journey. Within the Georgia PKU Connect community are a number of active PKU adults that can relate.
Though the whole site contains valuable information, this page is designed to provide links to give you a “quick start” – a guide to what may interest you first. Hopefully this will be helpful, but also please reach out to us and “connect”.
