    Hi! Just wondering if there are PKU’ers out there who do night shifts and how do they get along? I find it so hard with the amount of phe I’m allowed, and trying to stay on diet while doing nights? Anyone else do nights and have trouble. And if you don’t have trouble, how do you do it?

    Hi Angel,
    I use to do nights ,but honestly my body could not take it.
    I would eat popcorn and coke to stay awake,but overall it just did not work for me.
    Now i don’t work when i did i put my husband through PC school,and needless to say i don’t have to work anymore.
    When i did work my diet was out of control,and i just did not eat.That was the way i became Anorexic.
    Not good.So we made some drastic changes suffered for awhile, and now finally getting back on track.
    Good Luck.Stay strong.
