 Hi guys

Just new to this website :-)

Its true, high levels do cause depression and anxiety, and they  say the longer your off diet the worse it will get.  I have been on a slack pku diet for awhile now and i feel anxious and depressed amongst other syptoms.  

Best advice is to get back on diet, they say it takes up to 6 weeks before you notice any change :-) but is well worth it!

Best of luck x
