Hi there! Our son just had his blood drawn at the hospital yesterday for the genetic testing. We understood that it would help determine whether or not he would be a responder to Kuvan when he is old enough. They took a lot of blood and I believe it gets sent to Montreal. We were told it would take months to know anything. We'll keep our fingers crossed. It was free for us also in Canada.
