Like Lucy said you could go to the genetic counselor if you really want to know if your a carrier or not. They could do a gene test which would tell you what the make up of your DNA is (I think that is what it is). Then they would beable to tell you what’s on your 12th chromosome (the chromosome that has the PKU gene on it). So that would tell you if your a carrier or not. nBrenana 16 CPKU
