I was diagnosed with PKU late, at thirty days. I have some issues, mainly short term memory, due to my late diagnosis. I graduated from high school last year and just finished my first year of college. Without my medical foods, I would lose a major part of my diet which would further exacerbate my late diagnosis issues but create new problems as well. Right now I have insurance from my mom‘s job.
