In brief: No!

Galactosemia cannot be cured.
But, you can take steps to prevent or minimize galactosemia symptoms and complications. The treatment is the strict avoidance of all sources of galactose. The most common source is lactose, which is the milk sugar that breaks down to galactose and glucose. Avoid: milk or milk by-products, fermented soy products, legumes, organ meats, & hydrolyzed protein.
