Hi There, nMy name is Tracie,and back when i was in school
my parents took me off diet.BIG MISTAKE!!!!
I could not focus,take tests,or even make and keep friends.
I would definitly in a loving way speak with her mom,and get her on diet or evaluated from her PKU Dr.
I graduated,but i’m not proud of my GPA.
I don’t blame my parents cause back in the 80’s
the Dr’s thought our brains were fully developed,and would not be affected.
Needless to say i pay for it now.
Hopefully i was helpful,anymore questions feel free to ask!!!!
