PKU Careers??

February 20, 2014 in Uncategorized

altPKU Career BlogaltHello. I started this blog to keep a promise. A promise to myself. A promise to my parent and future family. A promise to my loved ones the ones I know now and the ones I will meet in the future. My goal of the blog-site is to make a realisitc goal for myself everyday that I can keep, weather it's doing my home work or making sure I drink every gram of my Phenex 2 that I am required (200 grams.) This will alwasy be a place where I can be honest with myself if I really met my goal that day. This Blog is to motivate me to have a better tomorrow. Now in closing in the introduction I guess you could say, one more thing would be that I will have questions every day to help me and others plan out their future while embracign their PKU.     What kind of careers are there that work with PKU patients?-I have researched this and I know that my specialist doctor at University of South Florida's medical facility is a Genetecist, and she word with things like heredity and other types of things you can get from your parents and their parents and so on. She works specifically with metablicly disabled people and PKU is a form of a metabolic diasease. She gets to help out her patients and teach them how and why you should stay on your restricted diet. And when your off she helps you get back on track, which is very important. - I do not know of many other professions that are really hands on with the PKU patients, does anyone out there know? It would really help a lot! Thanks! Also if anyone has any questions feel free to ask! I have had PKU my whole life if you need any help at all, just ask!Thanks!If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere.Read more at I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere.Read more at
