PreKUnil's pioneering large neutral amino acid formulation works by inhibiting Phe transport across the blood-brain barrier. PreKUnil tablets allow those with PKU to follow a more liberal diet, where they can get up to 80% of their protein intake from normal food.
The odourless and flavourless tablets use an advanced coating technology for slow release, avoiding a high concentration of acid in the stomach and helping to keep Phe level more stable. PreKUnil tablets are easy to use, convenient to carry around and getting the right dosage is simple.
PreKUnil is not suitable as a sole source of nutrition, and a metabolic dietician should guide an individual diet plan. PreKUnil tablets contain no sugar, reducing the risk of contributing to being overweight or obese.
For all PKU patients who can swallow tablets. Not suitable in pregnancy. Suitability should be determined by a doctor. PreKUnil tablets must be used under strict medical supervision. The recommended dosage depends of lean body mass. For full details, download the data sheet.
