bsbdeezee, I am a mom with pku I have three children. They are all healthy and have not suffered any affects from pku. The oldest two are excelling in school 97.6 overall average for my 8yr old last year, and 98 average for my 6yr old last year. the youngest has started this year and is doing well so far. None of my children have any behavioral issues or other side effects. I would suggest that if you are pregnant to follow the diet and do your best to control your levels.
I also have a moderate form of pku and found the diet became easier after sticking to it for a month or so. Good luck and all the best. Kelli
