MPKU – It's good news week!


September 17, 2009 in Uncategorized

No, I am not pregnant, lol. Not planning to be until November even if I get my levels down before that. BUT... I have! Well just about. I had 151 on Monday!! It's the lowest I've ever been! I've been told to aim for between 75 and 150 for pregnancy, so I'm nearly there!!! YAY! :D AND.... last night my husband and I put an offer on a house and were accepted!! Woohoo!! So you can see why it's good news week :)

    Congratulations! Wow that is very low. I have only been told 150-300. That is weird considering you are also in Australia? Just the other side from me.

    I don’t really feel any different, but I haven’t been lower than 151 yet. Will ask dietician why, but that’s what she said. I have it written.

    Hi Jill, good luck with that! We can all help each other! :)

    I have just started the maternal PKU diet after being off diet for 15 years. I have been told my levels need to be between 100-300 for pregnancy. I’m in the UK.

    I spoke to my dietician today and she said the international recommendation is 100-300 but there has been some evidence that 75-150 is better, so locally that’s what they recommend here. There’s nothing wrong with 100-300 but 75-150 is better because the normal phe level for someone without PKU is about 35-85. And also some places have different measurings/machines or whatever also, so my levels are for my particular state.

    Hi Bannie….well done on getting your levels down!! That is not an easy feat!! I too felt really bad when my levels were low. The lowest they were was 21. Good luck for the months to come!! :)
