Just quoting you to correct you.
In order for you to have a child with PKU, BOTH parents must be gene carriers.
I am amazed you doctor or nutritionist did not tell you this.

My Finace and I have a New Son . He was a preimee in the NICU and was jsut diagnosed.

 We are going through a great deal of emotions and are jsut starting this journey.

I may be very well the one on the rare side that has Both genes as I have distant cousins that have it . They are sever and profound as they were before the diets came.

I can not believe it passed my brother up and and sister up and landed directly on me. I guess I got the Lucky Lottery ticket.

I do not for see my fiancee beeing the carrier. None of her family mebers ever had it as far as they know.
