With untreated PKU Phe does not exit the body. But in a “normal” person I would assume that it would be however long it takes that particular person to metabolize protein. WIth treated PKU I guess it would be how ever long it thats that person to metabolize the small amount of PHE they are allowed. That is a good question for a dietician.
