I can’t exactly answer all your questions because I’m not a parent of a baby with PKU, but I do have PKU. The metabolic formula that we have to drink has all the missing protein that we need, minus the phenylalanine that is harmful to us. That is how Tucker will continue growing even though he isn’t eating protein in reality he is still getting protein along with other nutrients from his formula.
I hope this helps! nBreanna 17 CPKU
