For patients with Classic Galactosemia, Galactosemia-Duarte variant, and UDP-galactose-4-epimerase deficiency, this test helps monitor nutritional therapy.
This exam is a galactosemia screening.
In typical diets, lactose, which is present in milk and dairy products, is broken down (metabolised) to produce the majority of the galactose. One GALT-deficient infant out of every 65 000 is born. The body cannot recess down galactose without this chemical, and as an outcome, it collects in the blood. Use of milk products over time may result in:
failing to flourish
an enlarged liver
Various laboratories may test different samples or use multiple metrics.
An abnormal outcome suggests galactosemia. A genetics expert should be contacted immediately if you suspect your child has galactosemia. The youngster needs to start a milk-free diet right away. Both breast milk and animal milk are prohibited. Often, soy milk and newborn soy formula are substituted.
