Summaries for Duarte Variant Galactosemia

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Duarte galactosemia is a mild variant of classic galactosemia, a condition that affects how the body processes galactose (a simple sugar found in milk, dairy products, and other foods). Unlike the other forms of galactosemia, most affected infants do not develop any concerning signs or symptoms even when breastfed or on a galactose-containing formula. Some may develop jaundice, but this symptom typically resolves quickly when the baby is switched to a low-galactose formula. Duarte galactosemia is caused by changes (mutations) in the GALT gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. People with Duarte galactosemia, specifically, typically have one severe GALT gene mutation and one milder GALT gene mutation, known as the "Duarte variant." Experts disagree regarding the risks and long-term complications of Duarte galactosemia and whether or not dietary interventions are needed. As a result, there is no standard treatment for infants with the condition. Some healthcare providers recommend partial to complete dietary restriction of milk and other high galactose foods for affected infants, but others do not.
