Breast or Formula: Breast milk is best, but commercial formulas are fine for babies with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. Sulfa drugs, acetaminophen, and anti-malarial medications should be avoided, and as the child ages, fava beans must not be eaten and other legumes should be introduced with caution. Vitamin c, 60-100 mg/day, can help preserve glutathione in this condition. ...Read more

Org. ...Read more

My son is 21years old now and have been eating peanuts, soya bean drinks and other food supposedly forbidden for g6pd. Will all this effect him later?

No: Consider Folic Acid if you're hemolyzing, but don't look for magic in diet or vitamin bottles. You do not need to "strengthen" your red cells; you merely need to avoid medications and foods that will destroy them. G6pd deficiency is a common minor nuisance, and it's your right & duty to learn how to manage it and avoid episodes of hemolysis. Most folks like you have little difficulty with this. ...Read more
Vitamin E and Folic: Food high in vitamin e and Folic Acid help decrease red blood cell breakdown in g6pd. Definitely avoid fava beans since they are a known cause of red blood cell breakdown in the blood.

I am g6pd deficient. I had a severe reaction to cephalosporin. Should this medication be avoided since I am g6pd deficient or is this another reaction that has nothing to do with my g6pd deficiency?
Not G6PD Deficiency: The g6pd deficiency association's web site, g6pd. Org, has lists of unsafe drugs and foods for people with g6pd. (not cephalosporins) in g6pd deficiency, if a drug or food causes oxidant stress, hemolytic anemia, or breakdown of red blood cells, can occur. Cephalosporins can be associated with allergic reactions and rarely with hemolytic anemia, but the reason for the hemolysis is different. ...Read more

Would not recommend: In trying to determine what is in "tiki-tiki", I have run across a number of g6pd forums asking a similar question and the consensus is not safe for g6pd. I do not know why you want to take tiki-tiki (or give tiki-tiki to your child), but I would say the risk/benefit ratio favors staying away from it if you have g6pd. A hemolytic crisis is not worth it. Find something else instead of tiki-tiki. ...Read more
