Glucose-6- Phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency



Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD deficiency) is an inherited condition of the blood. Individuals with G6PD deficiency usually show no signs or symptoms of the condition until they are exposed to certain medications, foods or infections. These exposures can trigger the red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body, to break down prematurely.


Signs and Symptoms
Signs of glucose-6- Phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD deficiency) can begin any time from infancy to adulthood and vary in severity. Signs of G6PD deficiency include: Paleness, Yellow skin tone (Jaundice), Dark urine, Tiredness, Shortness of breath and Rapid heart rate.
