Oh one more thing. About it being hard with non PKU siblings, it hasn’t been hard. My older sister and older brother knew since the day I was born not to give me food without asking my parents and my entire family has been supportive. I think that is the main key to raising a child with PKU, giving them support and making sure they know they can do anything any other kid can.
As for my little sister, Erica, I think she’ll have it much better because all throughout her life she’s had someone else with PKU in her life. So to answer your question, having non-PKU siblings hasn’t been hard because we try not to make PKU an issue or ‘problem’ it’s just a part of our daily life. nBreanna
