Galactose

Galactose is a monosaccharide. When combined with glucose, through a dehydration reaction, the result is the disaccharide lactose. Along with glucose and fructose, galactose is one of the three most important blood sugars in animals. Galactose is less sweet than glucose and sucrose.


Information from the National Institutes of Health:

Glucose-Galactose Malabsorption

Glucose-galactose malabsorption is an inherited condition in which the cells lining the intestine cannot take in the sugars glucose and galactose, which prevents proper digestion. This condition typically becomes apparent in the first few weeks of a baby's life. When fed breast milk or regular infant formulas, affected infants experience severe diarrhea resulting in life-threatening dehydration, acidosis, and weight loss. Some children are better able to tolerate glucose and galactose as they get older. Affected individuals can also develop kidney stones or more widespread deposits of calcium within the kidneys.

Galactosemia

Galactosemia is a condition in which the body is unable to use (metabolize) the simple sugar galactose.

People with galactosemia are unable to fully break down the simple sugar galactose. Galactose makes up half of lactose, the sugar found in milk. The other sugar is glucose.

If an infant with galactosemia is given milk, substances made from galactose build up in the infant's system. These substances damage the liver, brain, kidneys, and eyes.

Persons with galactosemia cannot tolerate any form of milk (human or animal). They must be careful about eating other foods containing galactose.
