I think their are 3 types of PKU. Classical PKU is one and I think another is hyperphe (if I’m wrong anyone can feel free to correct me as I’m only 15 and going off of what my dietian has said). Basically I’m pretty sure the types are PKU are just based on how much phenlalanie your body can handle, or how much phe intake you have. And some doctors tell you your levels are okay if their under 10 and some doctors have their own different opinion but it’s been found that your best if your levels are between 2 and 6. nBreanna
