Avatar of kate

Hi, my name is Kate and I am new to this site. I am 34 years old and have been off my diet from i was 6 months old. I have had no follow up medically from i was 11 years old and have just started to research PKU as my husband and i are trying to start a family. I really have no idea about PKU and to tell you the truth this is now frightening me somewhat! could anyone suggest how i go about starting a diet before pregnancy? I have contacted a metabolic clinic and i am going to have my levels checked, fist time in 23 years! I think i have slipped through the net somehow! Any advice would be really appreciated. k
