In addition to TMS, it is also desirable to add 3 more techniques for a complete screening program: 1) Gas chromatography and mass spectrometer for urine organic acid analysis to confirm diagnosis of organic acidemia and certain fatty acid oxidation disorders; 2) An amino acid High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) to confirm diagnosis of aminoacidopathies; and 3) AutoDELFIA system for the diagnosis of disease that cannot be identified by TMS namely congenital hypothyroidism, biotinidase deficiency, galactosemia
, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, cystic fibrosis, etc.
Neonatal screening for galactosemia
by quantitative analysis of hexose monophosphate using tandem mass spectrometry: a retrospective study.
Jaundice appearing after the 1st week: breast milk jaundice, septicemia, congenital atresia of the bile ducts, hepatitis, rubella, herpetic hepatitis, galactosemia
, hypothyroidism, spherocytosis (congenital hemolytic anemia), other hemolytic anemias (G6PD deficiency, glutathione synthetase, reductase, peroxidase, pyruvate kinase deficiencies).

Mandatory neonatal screening is already in place for diseases such as PKU, sickle cell anemia, congenital hypothyroidism, galactosemia
, and congenital adrenal hypoplasia(*1) because early intervention for these diseases can have a profound effect on outcome.
is a rare hereditary disease leading not only to cirrhosis in infants, but, more seriously, to early, devastating illness if not diagnosed quickly.

The results today support the [American Academy of Pediatrics'] recent policy and what a lot of pediatricians are already doing: Saying that soy formula is best for vegetarian families who want to feed their kids in a vegetarian way or have a specific concern such as galactosemia

Monitoring neonatal hypoglycemia with the Accuchek advantage II glucose meter: the cautionary tale of galactosemia
Direct analysis of enzyme activity is used in testing for galactosemia
(galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase deficiency) and biotinidase deficiency.
Actualmente, los trastornos metabolicos tambien se identifican como posibles causas fundamentales del SMSL, y son reportadas algunas entidades como: alteraciones en la cadena respiratoria mitocondrial, aciduria dicarboxilica, aciduria etilmalonica, aciduria metilmalonica, aciduria propionica, aciduria isovalerica, glucogenosis tipo I, galactosemia

Patients were excluded from the study if they had any organic disease of the small or large intestines, had a known allergy to either of the study medications, or had previous gastrointestinal surgery, cardiac or renal failure, ileus, bowel obstruction, galactosemia
