Hi Celina, nMy name is Kate and i am from Ireland too. I am 34 years old and also trying to get pregnant. I was diagnosed with PKU at 2 weeks old, but have been off the diet from i was 6 months old, so i have never really had any experience with PKU until now! I decided to research a bit about PKU as my husband and i are trying to start a family and “maternal PKU” came as a bit of a shock to me. I have never been given information regarding this and seem to have slipped through the net somehow. I haven’t had my levels checked in 23 years! and didn’t even know how to go about it, but luckily i found a metabolic clinic and a spcialist, who was just as shocked to hear from me! I am just waiting to have my levels checked and then take it from there. I wish you all the best with your diet, hope you fall pregnant soon, sail through your pregnancy and have a healthy, happy bouncing baby! nAll the luck o’ the Irish! nK x
