Hi! I'm Nadège, I'm 25 and I was diagnotised PKU at birth and on diet until now. I'm now 8 weeks pregnant, and I'm having hard times with my phe levels. Before pregnancy and for the first month I had good results, but since 2 weeks my phe level increases and I don't know why?! I'm still following the diet like it was with good results… I'm now over 13 and I'm really scared about what will be the consequences for my baby. I don't know what to do to make my phe level decrease.  Somebody could help? Thanx in advance…
