Is tiki tiki safe for g6pd?

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

What are the baby foods safe to feed a g6pd deficiency baby?

What are the baby foods safe to feed a g6pd deficiency baby?

Most are safe: From the time when babies are sitting to when they walk is a marvelous opportunity to introduce many flavors of foods (www. Drgreene. Com/colorin). Kids with g6pd deficiency should avoid fava beans. Some kids - depending on their variant - should also avoid blueberries (& yogurts containing them), soy, other legumes, some chinese herbs, or tonic water (not great for babies anyway). I love g6pd. Org. ...Read more

If I am a beta thalassemia carrier female is it safe to have kids with a G6PD male?

If I am a beta thalassemia carrier female is it safe to have kids with a G6PD male?

Avoid 2 bad genes: One way to avoid having a child who inherited a bad trait, is to make sure that NOT both parents carry genes for that bad trait. So, a woman carrying a thalassemia gene (beta mutations are on chromosome 16, or alpha on 11) wants to marry a man with NO thalassemia mutations. Likewise, a man with G6PD (on chromosome X) wants to marry a woman with no G6PD. A doctor can check both the man and woman. ...Read more

Hi! . my baby is now 5 months old and she is g6pd. What milk formula is safe for her? .... Is cerelac flavoured wheat, banana and milk are safe for her? ..

Ok to start solids: It is ok to start cereal by 4-6 months, but because wheat allergy is common, rice or oatmeal is usually recommended as a first cereal. The type with added fruit and milk is ok. Continue the same infant formula until your child is close to a year old. To give variety, add a different vegetable to the feedings once a week, unless there is a reaction, like rash or vomiting or diarrhea. ...Read more

My friend has a head cold and chest congestion. He has g6pd. What OTC decongestants are safe for him to take?

My friend has a head cold and chest congestion. He has g6pd. What OTC decongestants are safe for him to take?

OTC medications are: Heavily marketed to the public, but data suggests they do little if anything to alter the course of illnesses they are marketed toward. Some symptomatic relief may be achieved, but is generally short-lived. A more effective approach, with no risk to a g6pd patient, are the old standbys, rest, hydration, humidified air and time. This said, most otc meds are low risk. See g6pd. Org for specifics. ...Read more

Hi there. My 5 year old son has G6pd defficiency. He has a cold right now. Is it safe to use Eucalyptus oil at home?

Safe: But do not expect any benefit. Unless you just enjoy the smell of it. How was it that he was tested? Did he react to something? Avoid fava beens. There are many meds to avoid, including certain antibiotics, meds for malaria and gout, dapsone, aspirin acetominophen. Sometimes I need to use one of these meds for such a person but must keep to a small enough dose so that the hemolysis is not too bad. ...Read more

Which is safer for a 4 yo boy (g6pd defficiency) wz hard cough, to give him butalin syrup+ rhinathiol or beclazone 250 and ventolin inhalers?

Cough: It would be preferable to give ventolin for acute relief of symptoms & to continue beclazone as a controller medication. If there are any signs of respiratory distress (difficulty speaking, fast breathing, retractions etc.) or lack of response to therapy, please talk to your doctor immediately or take your child to the nearest emergency room for evaluation & treatment. ...Read more

Can G6PD deficient kids under 5 take multi vitamin supplements? Are all vitamins safe for such kids?

Can G6PD deficient kids under 5 take multi vitamin supplements? Are all vitamins safe for such kids?

Standard types safe: The standard types of multi-vitamins or multi-vitamins plus minerals are as safe for children with G6PD deficiency as they are for non-G6PD-deficient children. If unusual, non-standard doses are used, then nobody really knows how safe or unsafe those supplements would be. Thus, one should stick with standard dosing and reputable brands. ...Read more

Does a hebal medicine called "watsonal castoria" safe to intake by a g6pd deficient. My 1 year old baby got a lost bowel movement.

Does a hebal medicine called "watsonal castoria" safe to intake by a g6pd deficient. My 1 year old baby got a lost bowel movement.

Don't use it: In my opinion, it is too risky to use herbal medicines (where you don't really know what they contain) when you have g6pd. This is especially true if the patient is only one year old. If your baby is constipated, increase their fluid intake (prune juice or apple juice work well). If this doesn't work, call their doctor for other advice. ...Read more

Is it safe for me to give my daughter (4) ambroxol if she is already drinking an antitusive?

See Your Doctor Now: 4 yr old taking antitusive "safe to give ambroxol"? Cough has many causes, at her age infection is most likely. Giving suppressants without knowing the cause can allow an undiagnosed infection to develop complications like pneumonia. Ambroxol reportedly controls mucous production which also occurs in infection. Do NOT give Ambroxol. See your child's doctor now for correct diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Not so much: I would rather you go to an urgent care center than start some antibiotic that would cover up a real medical problem. I consider such a practice sloppy work and dangerous.

I'm using following tablets for my asthma treatment 1)ruptadine&montelukast 2)ambroxol, terbutaline&etofylline 3)sertalin r they safe for long term use?

If ok'd by the FDA: Any medication can have bad side effects in a few people. Medications that are approved for long term use by the FDA are considered safe, but doctors and patients still keep an eye out for undesired reactions. Also, "long term" may mean 6 weeks, 6 months, 6 years, etc... Doctors on HealthTap that are U.S. doctors generally do not have much information on foreign medications. ...Read more
