G6PD Quantitative Reflex Qualitative in Ahmednagar
G6PD Qualitative Blood measures the amount of G6PD in RBCs.
To check for the presence of inherited G6PD deficiency.
Your doctor may recommend a G6PD test if he suspects you may have haemolytic anemia based on symptoms such as:
- An enlarged spleen
- Pale skin
- Increased heart rate
- Darker coloured urine
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) is an enzyme involved in energy production. It is present in all the cell, including red blood cells and helps protect them from certain toxic by-products of cellular metabolism. A deficiency in G6PD causes RBCS to become susceptible to haemolysis (breakage). This test measures the G6PD levels in RBCs to help identify the deficiency.

G6PD is Test is positive if blood fails to shown fluorescence under UV light, or negative in the reverse case.
A low level of G6PD enzyme is indicative of the concerned deficiency. An affected person is more likely to experience symptoms in presence of certain triggering factor compared to the one who isn’t. The results, however, can't be utilised to predict how an affected person will react during a given set of circumstances. The severity of symptoms will vary from person to person and from episode to episode.
A normal G6PD enzyme level in a male indicates that it is unlikely he has a deficiency, and if anaemia is present, it is likely due to another cause. However, if the test was performed during an episode of haemolytic anaemia, it should be repeated several weeks later when the RBC population has had time to replenish and mature.
