Screening test for galactosemia
Galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) deficiency is the most common cause of galactosemia and requires lifelong restriction of dietary galactose.
Classic galactosemia can be diagnosed by analysis of GALT enzyme.
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.
