Who are SSIEM DG?
The SSIEM-DG (Society for the Study of Inborn Errors of Metabolism - Dietitians Group) is a networking group for dietitians and nutritionists working in the field of inherited metabolic diseases (IMD). The group was founded in London 2008 and was formally established in 2010 as a sub-group of the SSIEM.

The SSIEM-DG welcomes members from all countries in the world. Please visit our webpage for more information and our committee members (

What is the purpose of the SSIEM DG Academy?
For many IMD, diet therapy is the fundamental treatment. Metabolic dietetics is a highly specialised area and dietitians should have access to training, education and research to help provide the best available practice.

One main aim of the SSIEM-DG is to provide education and training for dietitians and nutritionists caring for IMD patients.

Over the next few years, the SSIEM DG Committee in conjunction with the SSIEM Education and Training Advisory Committee (ETAC) aims to host a series of educational events providing teaching on key topics of metabolic dietetics. These courses will be taught by expert dietitians in the field and include plenary lectures, practical workshops and new research work.

All the events organized by the SSIEM-DG Academy will be independent from Industries.

Who is the Phenylketonuria (PKU) course for?
The course is primarily aimed at dietitians and nutritionists who are new to this area of dietetics and want to learn more about practical dietetic management and monitoring of PKU. Doctors with no dietitians in their team, who are providing dietetic management, can be considered for the application.

What are the learning objectives?
1. To begin or be able to plan dietetic management for infants, children, adults and pregnant women with PKU.

2. To understand and interpret blood phenylalanine and other biochemical markers in PKU.

3. To know more about current or new dietetic and non-dietetic treatments in PKU.
