i noticed that the clinic locator dosnet show alot of places and it would be best that u called around , its very important to have both a regular doctor or obgyn and ur pku medical staff. they work toghter to inusre that the phe levels in ur body arent toxic and help u plan for a healthy baby, its also important to remember that phe levles are higher in the uterus then they are anywere else so u need ur levels really low before conseption and during pregnacy, my clinc and staff recomend that there between 2-6 mg/dl 6 months prior to conception and all through out. thats why its a good idea to contact them now so they can help u find ur tolernace, plan food records and monitor ur blood levels so u have a happy and healthy baby!
good luck and let me know how it works out!!
