Hi There..

I have PKU Myself, i was always told that it takes 2 PKU Genes to make a child have PKU…. So basically am saying both you and ur wife carry the gene :-) hope this helps x x

I think this right…. Because when i had my children i carried PKU in both my genes so it determined weather my partner passed on a gene with PKU for my Children to actually have PKU the same as me!!!

Hope this helps x
