I have been off the diet for years now and I have not felt any affects… I am in the greates shape of my life and I am in unversity studying. I am able to obtain marks that are better then snmy of my other classmates.
Depending on the type of PKU you may have and how rigourous your diet was when you were growing up- these factors will all determine the future on how well your body will respond to higher Phe levels.
I am now looking into KUVAN in order to lower PHe levels as precautionary measures…
