Community Discussion Forum Adults and PKU Husband with PKU Reply To: Husband with PKU


I know what you mean about the Vitamin After-Taste. I want to be able to drink those Juice Boxes so badly because they are so convenient, however, I can’t get past that taste. Any thoughts? I have some sitting in my fridge that I’m trying to formulate a plan on getting into my stomach.
Amy – I believe I know and understand what your husband may be feeling. Getting back on diet is not easy and honestly for me its a constant battle as I face expectations to be “Normal” by those I work with. Given my hectic schedule, I always need to be 2-3 steps ahead of what may happen that would prevent me from staying on-diet which really means getting the right food into me and drinking my formula as needed.
It can be tough. I’m here if you want my thoughts.
