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.
