According to galactosemia emedicine, it has been found that the deficiency of galactose -1-phosphate uridyl transferase deficiency is the most common form of carbohydrate metabolism disorder caused by genetic mutations.

Furthermore galactosemia emedicine states that when this metabolic disorder is inherited, it may lead to life threatening illness, especially in newborn babies.

This occurs as the deficiency of the galactose -1-phosphate uridyltransferase or GALT causes hypergalactosemia.

Therefore the removal of lactose from the diet will be effective in reducing the toxicity levels in the newborn babies.

The galactosemia emedicine variant can be related to the exact location of the gene defect.
