    ok, so my daughter’s last levels went up from a 3.2 to a 4.5…she’s really teething right now, so my question is does teething really make phe levels rise. Her nurse said yes, it can. Also, oragel has sodium sacchrin in it..so I don’t want to use it at all…has anyone used it? Any other suggestions?

    Hello, nMy son is 2 1/2 years old now but when he was teething we occasionally used Oragel. Sometimes it was easier to give him some liquid Tylenol instead.

    Hi there, nTry not to worry.
    If you are not comfortable with any medications nUse a frozen wash cloth.
    Its refreshing, and its safe.
    Also teething rattles just freeze them. nYou’ll be amazed at the response.
    Take care, nTracie-PKU
