Screening for galactosemia
Galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) deficiency is the most common cause of galactosemia and requires lifelong restriction of dietary galactose.
This is a screening test only.
This test is not appropriate for the diagnosis or monitoring of galactosemia. For diagnosis, see GCT / Galactosemia Reflex, Blood. For monitoring, see GAL1P / Galactose-1-phosphate (Gal-1-P), Erythrocytes.
See Galactosemia Testing Algorithm in Special Instructions.
