|My name is Bharat Ramanujam, I live in California. I am 38 yrs old. I was diagnosed at the age of 2 that I had a condition called Homocystinuria, which is due to the absence of an enzyme in my body.
Update April 2020:
In 1999, this site was developed in order to help people with HOMOCYSTINURIA(HCU). In the last so many years I was not able to update this site because of having series of health problems. Since I feel much better right now I will be updating it on a on a regular basis. Also I was recently inspired while attending the first ever conference on HCU in Denver.
Since I missed some of my classes in high school due to health problems, I completed some courses in a community college for about 6 years. Some of the courses I have completed are computer, math, weight training, English, Yoga , geology, and nutrition. My hobbies are reading history, wildlife listening to music, watching action movies and tennis. I am also a volunteer at San Diego Zoo and Safari Park.
Over the last 10 years I have been travelling extensively to learn about world history and also endangered animals. I have visited historical sites related to US presidents, Civil War, Civil Rights, WorId Wars, Americal Revolution and recently several Space related sites in the US and Europe. I have summarized all these on my website:
The animal information are on my website:
