GALACTOSEMIA (EPIMERASE), QUANTITATIVE, BLOOD

Galactosemia is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by inability to metabolize galactose which is derived from lactose (milk sugar). The accumulation of galactose can cause feeding problems, vomiting, sepsis, diarrhoea, dehydration and hypoglycemia. Cataracts and mental retardation develop gradually. It is a mild and rare variant of galactosemia.
