Major Symptoms of Galactosemia

Galactosemia is a rare genetic disorder that affects the body's ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and other dairy products. It is characterized by severe symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and dehydration. In addition, affected individuals may experience joint pain, muscle weakness, and fatigue. The disease is usually inherited from parents and there is no known cure.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Galactosemia

For patients with galactosemia, we need to pay attention to dietary issues. Because galactosemia is a disease caused by the body's inability to digest lactose, patients need to avoid dairy products and foods containing lactose. It is recommended that patients eat glucose-based foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole-wheat bread, etc. , and pay attention to the balance and moderation of their diet. Additionally, patients need to pay attention to dietary hygiene to avoid infections and other health problems.
