Red blood cells carry oxygen to every cell in your body from your lungs. Your cells require oxygen to grow, reproduce and remain healthy. G6PD deficit occurs when you do not have enough G6PD. This is a hereditary condition that primarily affects men. G6PD deficiency can result in the death of red blood cells. Haemolytic anaemia occurs when the body's red blood cells are destroyed quicker than they can be replaced. When you have haemolytic anaemia, your cells do not receive enough oxygen.

Frequently asked questions

When exposed to ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) without G6PD protection, your red blood cells respond by wearing out, popping, or dying quicker than your body can replace them. This results in a kind of anaemia known as haemolytic anaemia.

A G6PD test is a blood test that measures glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase levels (G6PD). If your G6PD level is low, you may develop haemolytic anaemia, a condition in which your body destroys red blood cells faster than it produces them. If you exhibit signs of haemolytic anaemia, you may require a G6PD test.

Give your doctor a list of all the drugs and supplements you use. You usually do not need to cease eating or drinking (fast) before the test.

The turnaround time for the test result is 3 to 4 working days.
