G6PD (Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase) is an important enzyme in our body that helps in the breakdown of carbohydrates and fats to produce energy. However, some individuals may have a genetic deficiency of this enzyme, which can lead to the condition known as G6PD deficiency. It is a genetic disorder that can cause hemolytic anaemia (a condition where red blood cells are destroyed faster than they can be produced), particularly when exposed to certain triggers such as infections or certain medications. The G6PD Quantitative test is conducted to measure the level of G6PD enzyme in the blood and diagnose G6PD deficiency.

Symptoms

The symptoms of G6PD deficiency may vary depending on the severity of the condition. Some of the common symptoms include:
1. Jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes)
2. Dark urine
3. Fatigue
4. Rapid heart rate
5. Shortness of breath
6. Pale skin
7. Weakness

Test Procedure

The G6PD Quantitative test requires a blood sample for analysis. A healthcare professional will clean an area on your arm with an antiseptic solution and then use a needle to draw blood from your vein into a vial or syringe. The process takes only a few minutes and is relatively painless.

The collected blood sample is sent to a laboratory for analysis. In the lab, the level of G6PD enzyme in the blood is measured using a quantitative method. The test measures the amount of G6PD enzyme in the blood, which can help diagnose G6PD deficiency.

Treatment

There is no specific cure for G6PD deficiency. However, treatment options may vary depending on the severity of the symptoms. Individuals may sometimes require blood transfusions to replace the destroyed red blood cells. In other cases, avoiding triggers such as certain foods or medications may help prevent symptoms from occurring.

Individuals who receive a positive diagnosis of G6PD deficiency can take steps to avoid triggers and prevent symptoms from occurring. Speaking with a healthcare professional to learn more about treatment options is important.
