Hey Donna,
I just wanted to drop by and say welcome to the group, I don’t think I’ve seen you post before. Also, congrats on your little boy starting kindergarten! That has to be exciting, my youngest sister (I have 4 little sisters, an older sister and brother, one with PKU) started kindergarten last year.
What I really wanted to say is that your daughter will beable to have perfectly fine children if she follows her diet while she’s pregnant. BUT, I know you directed that question to Deb and she has done it before so I’ll leave her to fill you in on more details. I’m just telling you what my Medical geneticist, dietitian and genetic counselor have told me my whole life and what I’ve heard for women with PKU who have had kids. nBreanna n16 CPKU
