Dear Diane, nHi my name is Ken and I am 41 years old and have had PKU since I was an infant. I have found that many doctors are ignorant of this and well I too did have a hard time getting into the service but I did get in and have been in the Army for 17 years on and off. I still am in the army and have just a few more years until I retire.Most doctorsthat I have run into especially military doctors say that it is just a childhood disease,and that we have grown out of this.
