As parents, job number one is to help your child live healthy and normal lives. If your child has G6PD deficiency, being very familiar with the condition is important to fulfill that role.
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.
Having a baby is one of the happiest moments of a parent’s life. This joyous day also comes with some critical tests to determine if your child is clear from certain health conditions.
