Hi Ruth,
Its Tracie.Yes i am pretty fortunate to be able to eat that much.My Dr. says i have a veryrare Gene Mutation.So my body breaks some protein they just don’t know how much.
I still don’t eat meat or any poultry or evedn fish.All those are still no no’s.LOL
In my Drs. eyes.As for the Kuvan the only thing i experience is occasionally heartburn. nSo i’m doing pretty good with it. nUnfortunatly i do still take my protein supplement.Phenex 2.The one thing that lacks in Kuvan are assortments of vitamins.
I hope i was helpful for you? nTake care, nTracie-PKU
