I have fill them all with my blood from my finger that I have pricked for fresh samples and after drying I send them in normal post mail to Royal Children's Hospital for it to anylazed.

Few days results comes from their protien labs and I ring my dietitan or nurse at Monash PKU clinic for my results, lately my phe has been excessivly high. But it has been like that for most my life until they put me on diet, now off it it is never below 1200!!!!
