I used to drink Phenylade, I drank basically anything and everything they ever made. But the last one I drank was the Chocolate. I really liked the taste but I had to stop drinking it because for some reason it gave me massive stomachaches so I just refused to drink it. Now I drink Vitaflo PKU express coolers and XPhe Maxamum juice boxes. nBreanna
No I didn’t drink it fast. My doctor guessed it was because of how many calories are in Phenylade. I’m a pretty small person so he was assuming it was to many calories for me to handle. He wanted to switch me but my dietitian said no. nAnyway, I got the Vitaflo coolers because back in September when I went in for an appointment we did a blood test right before we went and my tyrosine level was to low to even read! Well it just happened I got a new dietitian and doctor and my dietitian (she is 1000times nicer then my old dietitian) gave me the coolers to try. nThen I was at a conference in February and that’s where I tried the juice boxes and I liked those so when I went in for another appointment in March I asked if I could start drinking those. nBreanna
Then again I’ve met some other people with PKU who aren’t small for their ages. All I know is the whole blue eyes blue hair is mostly the case…but not for me. I’ve got light skin but my hair is dirty blonde just like my siblings and I’ve got brown eyes!
