Sarah, nYep your aunt was defintally wrong. Blonde hair and blue eyes is more common in PKU, but not all PKU people have it (I’m living proof since my eyes are brown and my hair is more of a light brown). And not living to 3? Definatally NOT true! Otherwise I wouldn’t be here
I think your right, everybody dealing with this diet should jsut take it one step at a time. If you want more info, then that’s great go for it, but don’t take it more then you can handle. Everything will work out in the end. I’m sure my mom wasn’t 100% perfect with my diet all of the time because nobody is perfect at anything, but I still turned out fine! And so is my sister who is 8 and also has PKU (for those of you who don’t know I have 5 others w/o PKU). nBreanna n16 CPKU
