Yes, it’s been said that people with PKU should remain on a diet all their life, though I’m not sure why your daughter wouldn’t be. And the part about girls being on diet before getting pregnant is true because if your phenylalanine levels in your blood aren’t between 2-6mg of phenylalanine per decaliter of blood then the baby could be premature, have heat problems, be mildly-severely retarded, you could have a miscarriage ect.
