I’m just going to drop by my two bits worth.
From what I know if your son is 9 and has PKU but was never treated for it chances would be that he would have alot more then just trouble in school. Because not being on the diet at such a young age would affect his brain so much that he would probably be mentally retarded…so the chances of him having PKU is pretty unlikely.
