Question

What is galactosemia?

Answer

Galactosemia is a genetic disorder in which the child is born with a deficit where they are unable to properly digest galactose, which is one of the main sugars in milk.  These children have significant health issues related to milk, and often times if they are not diagnosed earlier, I am told this is a condition that can occasionally be fatal.  But nowadays it actually is usually caught early.
