Hi my name’s Breanna and I’m also a sophmore and me and my 8 year old sister have PKU like your sister. To answer your question they used to take kids off the diet when they were about 5 because they thought that since their brains had stopped all major developement that it couldn’t effect them but then they found that even though their brains weren’t growing anymore it still effected them which was why they put them back on diet. If you have any more questions or you or your sister want to chat or anything you can leave a message here or email me at nBreanna
