Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency: Introduction

Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency: A rare enzyme abnormality involving a deficiency of the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase which causes premature destruction of red blood cells. The excessive destruction of red blood cells can be triggered by certain infections or drugs or by eating fava beans. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency is available below.
