G6PD Blood Test

G6PD or glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase is an enzyme that is responsible for protecting your body cells from chemical and environmental damage, especially against free radicals-induced damages. G6PD deficiency is a genetic disorder that occurs due to malnutrition and a change in the genetic predisposition in your G6PD gene. 

This enzyme plays a crucial role in the functioning of your RBCs. In case of a deficiency, your RBCs might not receive adequate amounts of oxygen and start to break down, otherwise referred to as haemolytic anaemia. 

G6PD deficiency alone might not cause haemolytic anaemia or other health complications. A G6PD test helps your healthcare provider understand whether you have glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency or not and the associated risks and complications. 

Even though you might not be exhibiting any symptoms, you may have G6PD deficiency. So, your healthcare provider may recommend a G6PD deficiency test to gauge your G6PD levels against the normal level. 

Learn everything about the G6PD blood test, before you book lab test online. Understand the why, how, and what of this test.

Why Do I Need G6PD Deficiency Test? 

Your healthcare provider will recommend a G6PD deficiency diagnosis test if you 

  • Are exhibiting signs of G6PD deficiency as a trigger to consuming broad beans, viral and bacterial infections, medications, such as sulfa meds, malaria meds and antibiotics 
  • Are exhibiting signs of severe fatigue
  • Have pale or yellow skin, yellow eyes, an unusually dark skin and dark urine 
  • Have back pain, belly pain, shortness of breath, weakness and confusion 
  • Have a family history of G^PD deficiency 

Your healthcare provider may also recommend G6PD screening test for your newborn if the jaundice symptoms don’t go away on its own within 2 weeks. While jaundice is quite common in newborns, if it goes untreated may cause severe complications. 

How to Prepare for the G6PD Deficiency Test?

400 million people worldwide have G6PD deficiency and most of them might or might not show symptoms. Men are more likely to have glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency symptoms than women. Thus, on-time G6PD testing are recommended. 

Your healthcare provider will suggest not to consume certain supplements and medications, such as antibacterial, antifungal medicines, anticonvulsants, diuretics, etc. as these may interfere with your G6PD quantitative test results. You might need to reschedule the test if you are exhibiting active signs and symptoms of haemolytic anaemia.

What Does G6PD Deficiency Test Results Mean?

The results of the G6PD level test may vary from person to person depending on a number of factors. 

The G6PD test normal range is 5.5 to 20.5 units/gram of Haemoglobin for adults. Anything beyond this level, may mean a G6PD deficiency but not necessarily arrive at that conclusive diagnosis. 

A moderate G6PD deficiency is considered a condition in which the G6PD level in your blood is at 10% to 60% of the normal range. People with moderate deficiencies may have haemolytic anaemia, which can be managed. If your G6PD level is less than 10% of the normal range, it is deemed a severe G6PD deficiency.
