The basis of therapeutic diets is artificially synthesized substitutes protein without toxic to a child amino acids - phenylalanine. The remaining components of food such as fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals may be added to such a substitute in production (which is often done for children of the first year of life), or enter the body from normal food.
The main challenge in compiling a list of products is to provide the child's growth and development, giving all components of food, avoiding excess phenylalanine. Therefore, at diet drawing up it is necessary to consider set of the interconnected factors - amino acid composition of proteins, the amount of other nutrients, as well as the overall calorie content of food. The point is that if the body lacks the energy from carbohydrates and fats, it starts to get it out of the body's own proteins, that contain a significant amount of phenylalanine. This often happens, at the raised physical activities at children, diseases with increased body temperature and even at a teething. Besides, it is desirable to achieve an adequate income other amino acid, which is usually not enough for children with PKU - tyrosine. The deficit of tyrosine happen due to the fact that it is usually synthesized in the body from phenylalanine, but in PKU children this process is broken..Top
