Hi there,
I am 39 yrs old and grew up with PKU. nHonestly Brea is correct. nKnowledge is Power. nHe will be fine.He can do anything any other child can do. nJust keep him on diet! nMy parents took me off at 11 yrs old apparently when Drs. thought it was okay,but needless to say NO!
I have been in Sports Management my whole life until i married and my husband in a PC Geek.LOL nBut that is why i don’t have to work anymore.
I have a healthy 10 yr old n(going on 30 yrs ).LOL
Overall he’ll be fine. nJust don’t make PKU a big deal.
It’s just different foods ,and no protien.
Don’t worry You can do it!
Take care, nTracie-PKU
