I am a 30 year old woman who has until recently been off the PKU diet for at least 15 years. I went to my Doc because my husband and I would like to start a family. To do this I needed to get back on the PKU diet. For the past two weeks I have sailed through it with flying colors, but I have been motivated. The milk has changed tremendously. I was so excited that I was able to eat cereal again. I tried regular milk one time and one time only. It was nasty watered down yuck! I think going back on the diet has been easier for me than some because I do want to start a family. I received my first levels yesterday, and they were 30.80. WOW right! My second levels were taken yesterday and I can’t wait to get those.
Have faith in yourself and GOD. He is there with you.
