Details

The Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Blood Test, or simply G6PD Test, evaluates for a hereditary deficiency of G6PD, an enzyme found in red blood cells (RBCs) and other cells. When individuals with a G6PD deficiency are exposed to triggers such as stress, a bacterial or viral infection, or certain substances (examples include fava beans, naphthalene, aspirin, and some antibiotics and anti-malarial drugs), changes occur in RBC membranes that can cause the cells to break apart, leading to hemolytic anemia if the body can’t produce enough cells to replace the destroyed RBCs. Signs and symptoms of hemolytic anemia include weakness and fatigue, shortness of breath, fainting, jaundice, rapid heart rate, and dark (red or brown) urine.

According to the Nemours Foundation, G6PD deficiency affects about 400 million people and is the most common enzymatic disorder of RBCs. Most individuals with this deficiency are able to lead normal lives by avoiding triggers.

The G6PD Test is also known as G6PD, Quantitative, Blood; G6PD, Quantitative, Blood and RBC; G6PDH; G-6-PD; and RBC G6PD Test. No preparation is necessary prior to the test, and results will be available within two to three days. A prior doctor’s visit is not required to order this test. Patients also do not need insurance.
