It is a worrying time with a newborn at the best of times but this added pressure of ?pku must be so hard on you. However ,please try to relax as your baby will be fine. If pku the diet will give your child the perfect amount of vitamins/minerals/nutrition that is needed and often us pku-ers are far healthier than the ordinary Joe soap! (as long as we take the medicine etc of course!)

                   I think you should speak to your dr about your worries…. i actually rang the lab myself for the result when my son was born  as i have pku and i really wanted to know his result !!!(He is non-pku). Perhaps they will rush through the result for you…….

                   Good luck… thinking about you…………..let us know…….
