"Hi All, First off, I just logged on to PKU.com and was pleasantly surprised to see the new site. I think this will go a long way in letting all PKUers communicate with each other. I just wanted to share my thoughts on the challenges of managing PKU - its +'s and -'s. Just a running commentary: I have always looked at diet management as an extension of leading a healthy life. I eat a lot of fruits and veggies and they give me all the energy that I need to leave an active lifestyle. I keep long hours at work and average 5 - 6 hours of sleep. However, I am still able to go about my day without any fatigue, thanks to my eating habits and regular exercising. I think managing PKU leads to a better life management -- the ability to control a strong urge or tendency to a non-healthy lifestyle. Yes, I don't get to eat a burger every day, but honestly, I wouldn't want to. It's a matter of making the right choices and I am so glad I learnt it the PKU way.Cheers!"
