This week The Up For A Chat girls talk with Leanne Anders otherwise known as Primalmum. Leanne has two children who have PKU, a genetic disorder that prevents the amino acid phenylalanine from being broken down which then builds up in the the brain and causes mental retardation. Every child when they are born is tested for PKU and if the result is positive then a special diet will help prevent the adverse affects of this genetic disorder. The chances of a child in Australia having PKU is 1 in 10,000. Leanne takes on the role of the mother of her two children with PKU with education, understanding, responsibility and grace. Listen in to one amazing mother talk about how she not only deals with two children with PKU but her philosophy as a Primal Mum.
