My son is 2 and a half years old. I was concerned that his temper was caused by his occassional high PHE levels. My doctor said that at this age, tempers are common. He is just like any other child without PKU as far as behavior. I have to say, I was thinking just like you during bad tempers. Is this because of him having PKU… But, in reality everyone goes through this during toddler ages!!!
