azwolf. nYou sound like you are in the boat I was a couple of months ago.. I have a four year old who is austic with behaviorial, medically problems and OCD. When her sister was born in may and diagniosis with CPKU. Our family doctor and Genetist decide to run a PKU test to see if it was “Em” problem or part of. The lab drew blood for her arm for a phenylalanine test. They did not do a prick test. Lucky for us, her levels were in the normal. I would insist on the test after all its your baby and you want the best for her. nGood Luck, nBrandi
