If you’re referring to the fact that diabetes gets more public attention it is most likely because diabetes is much more prevalent than PKU. I also think that, although our PKU diet is very important, properly managing glucose levels is emphasized so much more because high/low glucose levels can cause coma or even death.

i find this extremely annoying also as many people even professionals not only don’t treat it as seriously but the majority don’t even know what it is which really annoys me. I mean i understand that the effects of going off of diabetes are more immediate and life threatening but the effects of PKU are pretty drastic aswell and i feel more people should know about it. but that might just be me.

Yes pku may not as seriously treated as diabetes by professionals is there is a the fact with diabetes that having too high sugar lever or too low will result in a diabetic coma, after that death.
As for pku they most you is a massive headaches,nasua and bladder jams, But if picked up late and not treated at brith it will cause profound brain damage and resulting mental retarding of mental ablities.
