I'm just lurking but I wanted to share that my dd has one of the problems that is tested for on the PKU test. Without the early treatment, by the time symptoms showed up it would have been too late to reverse some of the damage, so I would say take the test as soon as you can.
I'm sort of considering a homebirth for our next baby.. not that we will be ready anytime soon or anything.. but I am curious, can the midwife order the PKU test or do you have to go through your pedi?
