Hi Kenneth. My name’s Breanna and I’m 15 and have CPKU. Actually to tell you the truth until about a few years ago none of my friends ever really knew why I ate different or anything like that because at that time I never really felt comfortable telling them. But now basically all of my friends now atleast a handful of info about PKU and mostly that’s because in 9th grade we had to do a report in health on any genetic disorder we wanted and I did PKU and alot of people asked if I had PKU because they knew I ate different and so I told them yes. nBreanna
