Galactosemia is an autosomal recessive disorder in which galactose is not properly metabolized. Dietary lactose is broken down by lactase into glucose and galactose and then, in a three-step process, galactose is converted to glucose. This metabolic pathway is particularly important for the newborn, whose main carbohydrate source is lactose.
