hi! im new here and yes i have PKU as well. i've failed to keep up with the doctors due to low income circumstances and no health insurance. i'm very curious to know everyone's story and how they've dealt with everything! i would love to know about the updated information and new opportunities available to us today. i'm 21 years old and i've been diagnosed with PKU since i was a baby. last i remember they classified me as a PKU varient then changed it to a hyperfee varient. my younger brother also was diagnosed with the same thing. there's just the two of us. a rare duo. i'm so excited to hear what you guys have to say and im willing to get all the advice i can take! thank you! -jennifer

    yea i’ve stuck to my diet the whole 21 years of my life and i haven’t had any issues yet! haha. hyperfee or however its spelt isn’t as strict as your average PKU. im just restricted from all meats and diet stuff with sugar substitutes. i can have limited amounts of dairy, eggs, and cheese. and then everything else i can munch out on! at least thats how it was last time i got my levels tested. at least thats what i think the difference is. haha
