As a parent, learning your child has G6PD deficiency can be stressful and worrisome. However, gaining better knowledge of this condition can help you fully understand the factors that can affect your child's health and effectively strategize ways to help them.
G6PD Deficiency is a genetic condition that affects almost 400 million worldwide. A child with this condition lacks the G6PD enzyme that protects the red blood cells from early destruction. This makes red blood cells vulnerable to breakdown, which can lead to anemia.
Most children with G6PD deficiency don’t show symptoms until exposed to certain medications or food triggers such as Soy products, fava beans, and legumes.
Milk is an essential part of a young child’s daily diet. It contains vital nutrients to help with their healthy growth and development.
