    I’m 23 years old. I’ve been off the diet a few times before. After awhile it really takes it’s toll on me. Insomnia, paranoia, depression, even auditory hallucinations. Although I was never off the diet till I was 18. Apparently during the infant and adolescent stages, diet is crucial for brain development. My tolerance is in the low-mid range so that may be why the Phe effects me so drastically.

    thankyou guys it great to hear from you all I am lucky i have none of the things you mention. i am a happy person maybe because ive been off my diet for 25 years to me i feel normal its great to have this web site and be able to talk to others with PKU as for so long i have felt alone and just to hear the knowledge you all have about this is alot more than what i knew. i knew i was meant to be on a diet but knew little of what the side effects could be if im not.
