NeuroticMom,
I just thought I would let you know that I think Tucker’s mom is counting his phe levels in different units then you are. You are probably using the smaller units (mg/dl) which is why the larger units (umol/L) seem enormously high.
When Tucker’s level was 750umol/L it is 12.5mg/dl. 13umol/L converts to about 0.21mg/dl and 2700umol/L is 45mg/dl. To get from umol/L to mg/dl you divide my 60.
I hope this helps get rid of your confusion . nBreanna 17 CPKU
