Got my Formula

August 19, 2010 in Uncategorized

Well, 2 weeks later and I have my formula and wheening myself back on the diet. Slowly making progress as I have been off the diet for over 20 years. I am going this route to get back on because I am not used to the taste of the formula, but I have been working on getting bigger doses as time goes by. I started with an 8 oz cup then 2 days later went to a 16 oz and then will slowly increase the amount per day to get back on track. As far as how much to phe to count, it has yet to be determined because the support facility where I get my meds and health issues resolved doesn't cover PKU as they do not have the means. The hospital is a Veterans Affairs hospital and I had to go through a regular hospital to get formula. Downside is I have no insurance to cover visits at the regular hospital. 1 visit is $341.00. Can we say "OUCH"? More to come later. Richard
