About Canadian Families with Galactosemia
The Canadian Families with Galactosemia is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support and networking opportunities for families of children with galactosemia. Galactosemia is a rare, hereditary disorder of carbohydrate metabolism that affects the body�s ability to convert galactose (a sugar contained in milk, including human mother�s milk) to glucose (a different type of sugar). Because milk is the staple of an infant’s diet, early diagnosis and treatment of this disorder is essential to avoid serious lifelong disability.
