Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure hyperphe is just a mild case of PKU. It means that when they take your babies blood level to determine if they have PKU their phenylalanine level is higher then normal but not high enough to be considered classical PKU (classical PKU is the most severe case, meaning people with classical PKU usually are allowed less Phes). nBreanna
