Answer

See the list below:

  • Some of the secondary forms of Fanconi syndrome may be limited by preventing exposure to toxins such as lead and outdated tetracyclines and aminoglycosides. Eliminating lactose from the diet in children with galactosemia and tyrosine/phenylalanine from the diet in children with tyrosinemia helps alleviate the symptoms in some of the primary forms of Fanconi syndrome.
