Galactosemia is the inability of the body to use (metabolize) the simple sugar galactose (causing the accumulation of galactose 1-phosphate), which then reaches high levels in the body, causing damage to the liver, central nervous system, and various other body systems.
Treatment for Galactosemia:
People with this condition must avoid all milk, milk-containing products (including dry milk), and other foods that contain galactose for life. It is essential to read product labels and be an informed consumer.
Infants can be fed with:
* Soy formula
* Meat-based formula or Nutramigen (a protein hydrolysate formula)
* Another lactose-free formula
Calcium supplements are recommended.
