Hey melissa, I’m Breanna me and my 8 year old sister have PKU too. Yeah I know what you mean when you say you sneak foods at night when nobody is awake. When I was younger I did that to and the only reason I stoped is because my mom found out when my level came back super high and the cabinet was half empty and so now there is a lock on the cabinet, not really because i sneak anymore but just becuase my mom doesn’t want to take the chances that my sister will.
