My 12 year old son's phe level have been between 10 and 12. He seems to be struggling with grades and behavior. Could this be from phe levels in this range?

    Yes def…. My levels were high as 14 when I was in high school… My graders def decreased and my overall energy was poor. Have you brought this up to clinic? Is ur som drinking formula…. I ate the right foods but skipped the formula… That alone caused the levels to increase

    the last time my phe was measured it was 19. you can add flavorings to the formula to make it more palatable to your son. try fruit flavored powdered drink mix, such as Tang or a little fruit juice or strawberry syrup. I like orange juice and vanilla extract.

    Thank you. Is a level o 19 acceptable to you? The doctors are unhappy with anything over 10. We use use Sunny D Tangy original and it seems to be the only thing tolerable. Thanks for your response.

    it depends on whats acceptable for him and his diet…if his behavior or grades are significantly worse than what is normal for him on diet its likely that its related to his levels…

    Thanks. I find that these levels are too high. His levels are on the high end and it is a real struggle to keep them down. This is not as easy as they tell us when he was a newborn!
