Kate, nGood luck with getting back on diet! I hope everything works out! Also, if you want you can go to there are alot of adults there who could really help you out. One of the members there is pregnant at the moment and some of the others have been of diet and are now back on.
What was your level at if you don’t mind me asking? If you haven’t had any effects from being off diet it might just be that you have mild PKU. And just so you know as far as I know you can’t be misdiagnosed because of a underdeveloped liver. It’s not actually the liver that breaks down Phe it’s an enzyme in the liver so how developed your liver is really has no effect on that…sorry if I’m not making much sense. nBreanna n16 CPKU
