What is the real cause of G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase)?

Topic: What is the real cause of G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase)?

Hi! My name is Khaye and I am a mother 2 girls. My eldest child is 3 years old and my youngest is 2 years old.

When I gave birth to my second child, we have learned through her new born screening results that she has a G6PD or glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase.

They said that it is an inherited condition in which the body doesn't have enough of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, or G6PD, which helps red blood cells (RBCs) function normally. This deficiency can cause hemolytic anemia, usually after exposure to certain medications, foods, or even infections.

But I was wondering why and how could my daughter have that condition since neither of my family or my husband's family does have the same condition.

Her pedia said it is yet to be proven that it was being inherited so I wonder maybe I have eaten some food or medication that could cause this.

Hopefully you could help me so that I could be able to prevent this in the future or at least I could educate other moms out there who might be experiencing the same situation.

Thank you in advance!!! smile

Hi, Khaye! From what I learned in nursing school it is definitely due to genetics, and most carriers are healthy females since it is also associated in the x chromosome. This is not to scare you or cause distress, though. But I think it is more effective to consult physicians regarding this matter especially from a hematologist smile

Hi Patrcia, thank you for sharing that. Our pedia wants us to have another test to confirm. Right now my baby is very healthy and we at least not exposing her to the things she needs to avoid. Like menthol, soya etc.

Same here, my baby is G6PD deficient and it is definitely inherited genetically. In our case, we, her parents is not G6PD deficient but we are both carriers of the x chromosomes that is G6PD deficient. There's nothing much to worry about, everything must be in moderation. The only big No-No are the list of medicines which has substance that can trigger hemolytic anemia. For my baby, I am fond of feeding organic food for her and using chemical free baby toiletries and stuffs.

Hi, Khayce! You're welcome! I'm hoping for a better result of your child. Please also do keep in mind to provide healthy food options for her. Have a happy Christmas!
