G6PD Deficiency: Foods to Avoid


G6PD means glucose-6phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.  I must confess when we taught in biochemistry class then at school, I didnt think it was a big deal until I come across people who really have it.

People with G6PD lack an enzyme that converts glucose-6-phosphate to 6-glucophosponate.

Such people have problems handling some foods and drugs.  Hence they need to be aware of such foods and drugs and avoid them as much as possible.

I decided to share that picture of substances I saw on pinterest with you.


Thanks So Much.
