I have never really had this happen, but in the past I did notice that I had a hard time concentrating and keeping a conversation. What I mean by this is in the past when I would talk to my friends I would zone out in the middle of the conversation and then have to ask what they said because I wasn’t paying attention. But I haven’t had this problem in awhile.
Are you off diet? Because I know that one issue with being off diet or having not so good levels is memory loss.
I noticed you said you have 3 children, 2 with PKU. I was just curious how old they are? nBreanna n15 w/CPKU
