Hello to Everyone, I am new here . I have a 24 yr old daughter with PKU. Right now she is going through a major depressive episode. She is also having other ongoing problems. She has not been on the diet since she was very young. I am looking for any information that I can find to help her. No medications seem to help her and she is becoming VERY frustrated and getting more and more depressed every day.
I would love to talk to anyone that think they could be of some help. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
