hi i'm nadia, i new here..i have dhpr which is a form of pku, i've never met or spoken to anyone with either of the two. i'm on the low protein diet but it's really hard to stick to it, especially as i don't like cooking, i usually eat ready meals but they usaully contain alot of protein even the vegetarian options. my recomended protein level is 500 or less, but i usually find myself going above that, there are a few occasions when its almost double that. i really want to start sticking to my diet, but i don't know how, i'm starting to feel the effects of not eating the right meals, i get distracted very easily, my memory is becoming very bad, i forget things so easily and its affecting my education, i find at times i forget things taught in lectures just hours after the class. i know its time for me to change but it's just so difficult.
