Little tricks to get yourself taking the formula…

Hi there,

just wondering what kind of little tricks your applying when it comes to forgetting the formula? Unfortunately, I sometimes forget taking it in the evenings… so I came up with the idea to put a little bowl with my tablets in every room so I always have them right in front of me and it’s not likely to forget it anymore.

Here you can see the blue bowl on my bed table ūüôā

I’m really excited about your tricks and tips, we can learn so much from each other ūüôā

It was good to re-read the phe amounts and to get a better impression of how much phe is actually in certain vegetables. What are your favourite low protein veggies? Do you eat a lot of veggies within your daily diet?

So sorry…

Hi everyone,

I’m so sorry for not blogging for a while. I’ve been very busy with my diet-project and I already lost 6 kg – 4 kg left to reach the aim. But I somehow lost the PKU diet on the way so now I am trying really hard to find my way back and to keep it going.

I was at the hospital and found out, I have a Vitamin D 3 deficit… seems as if I should take walks more often… now I got special tablets… Well and I am trying to reach a constant level of 700 mg of phe per day which is very successful for two weeks now.

Will anyone of you go to the ESPKU meeting in Liverpool?? I’d love to go there…

Love,
Katie
