G6PD

Glucose-6-Phosphate-Dehydrogenase Deficiency (G-6-PD) is a genetic deficiency that causes red blood cells to hemolyze in the presence of certain drugs or chemicals, infections or other stressors. Statistically determined to affect more than four hundred million people globally, mostly people of African and Middle Eastern descent. When triggered, symptoms include fever, dark colored urine, abdominal and back pain, fatigue, and pale skin. It has been linked with maleria, and various organ failures including kidney failure. It can easily be confused with hard to isolate auto immune diseases such as ahus.
