I guess it would really depend on how long his levels were that high, I know that I have had some levels that were higher but because it was only for a short time and I got it under control it wasn’t a problem. I think one thing that really helped me was when my sister was born, I of course was extremely excited to not be the only one with PKU (my mom wasn’t okay with it at first but she knew I was okay so she knew that my sister would be too).
Maybe next time he has a PKU appointment talk to your dietitian or doctor about some of these concerns about how his levels could have effected him. I’m sure it’s nothing to serious but just know that there is no such thing as a silly question when it comes to PKU. I hope everything works out for you! nBreanna
