Yeah that’s the same for me, if I even go for one day without drinking my formula I’m super tired and I never pay attention in school and I basically zone out because I’m tired. But when I do drink it I’m fine, my dietian said it’s because the formula has all the nutrients and vitimans and other things like that people with PKU need because they can’t get it in other foods. She didn’t go into alot of detail but that’s basically what she told me because all thru middleschool I didn’t drink my formula like I should of and I was always tired.
