PKU patients get sick from time to time just like any other ‘normal’ person (whatever normal means). Yes, their levels will get higher while they are sick but everything else is usually the same. I found when I’m sick it helps alot if I drink alot of my formula, and you may have to check because I know alot of medicines do have some phenylalanine in them.
