Frequently Asked Questions
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.
