Information About G6PD Deficiency

G6PD deficiency 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 function normally. This deficiency can cause hemolytic anemia, usually after exposure to certain medications, foods, or even infections. It is most common in African-American males.
