I have a mild form of PKU, Hyperphenylalaninemia. This hasn't affected me until I started to plan a family. My levels do not and have never affected me or my development (lots of tests every year during childhood) However when planning to get pregnant I must follow a strict low protein diet and take supplements, in order to protect a growing baby from high phe levels. I was wondering if you had heard of this form of PKU as I've yet to find anyone with the same condition. Also do your levels impact you when planning a family in any way?
