I don't know about everyone else but i love sports. Especially playing it. some parents that are new to PKU may not know if a person can play sports with PKU but the truth is anyone who can swing a bat and throw a ball and catch can play. i started playing baseball when i was 7 years old. my dad and brother played against each other. its a great way to build hand eye cordination, muscular stength, and durability. when i was 8 and 9 i started playing with friends and we played it all the time. boys would understand it more. when i was 11 i finally joined a baseball league team. i didn't do that good because it was my first year. the next year i played i was average player and made a lot of friends. my third year is when i was the top player. my team went to the playoffs but not the championship. the next year is when i joined football. it was a great conditioning sport. i was very athletic and healthy. sports are very competitive. my 4 th year of baseball i went to the all star. so with PKU anyone can still play sports, be very smart, or very talented. i love sports and would never stop playing it.

    AJ – I agree with you. While I never was a big sports person, as I grew older, I have loved to dance and also run. I have found staying active in fact helps with lowering your PHE levels as long as you drinking the correct amount of formula. Back in October, I had an injury and have not been able to do much exercise since. It kills me knowing my levels might be higher and not having the exercise to destress at the end of the day.

    Take care,
    Katie

    oh sorry that happened to you. and yes it does help with the phe levels. i drink a lot of water and eat a lot of veggies which also is good because it makes me physically healthy.
