The diets of 19 galactosaemic patients were assessed for calcium and phosphorous intake. Despite the use of infant soya formula or calcium-supplemented soya milk the reference nutrient intake (RNI) for calcium was only met in 26% of the group; all patients met > 100% of the RNI for phosphorous. The regular assessment of the diets of galactosaemia patients is recommended as the milk-free nature of the diet can lead to an inadequate calcium intake. Lactose-free calcium supplements should be prescribed if the diet alone is inadequate.
