putting on weight

March 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

Hello :) I'm Nicola and im from England, I'm 19 have PKU and find it very hard to put on weight :( I have been on diet all my life and haven't really found it easy to talk about PKU or eat in front of people so as a result of this I've always been underweight I'm hoping this site can help me deal with feeling embarrassed about having different food! I only know one other peron with PKU and thats my lil bro . I hope I can grow in confidence when talking about PKU because it is an ambition of mine to raise awareness of PKU , so everytime someone is told you have PKU they don't bombard you with 100 questions they would just know!Hope to start speaking to some of you Nicola x
