[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Arial][SIZE=12][COLOR=green]hey everyone! my name is emily and i’m 21 and i live in orange county, California. i’ve stayed on my diet since birth but my levels always seem to be a lot higher than they should be. i recently ordered a lot of the prescription foods and was eating them only, and then found out that my levels were staying super high. all that disgusting food for nothing! so i’m not really eating them anymore… does anyone know a website or anything that can give you the amount of exchanges in regular foods? i can’t figure out how to convert protein to exchanges. thanks! and please reply to me! it would be so nice to have PKU friends that aren’t 6 years old like the ones at my hospital group haha!
