UNLABELLED The risk for premature ovarian failure (POF) in females with galactosemia can be predicted by analyzing 3 areas of risk pathology: the patient's molecular genotype for galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT), alternate pathways for galactose metabolism, and the patient's environment at diagnosis and during treatment. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective cross-sectional information was collected on 53 females with classic galactosemia, and their ovarian function was analyzed by… CONTINUE READING
