Summaries for Glucosephosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency

MedlinePlus : 41 glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (g6pd) deficiency is a genetic disorder that is most common in males. about 1 in 10 african american males in the united states has it. g6pd deficiency mainly affects red blood cells, which carry oxygen from the lungs to tissues throughout the body. the most common medical problem it can cause is hemolytic anemia. that happens when red blood cells are destroyed faster than the body can replace them. if you have g6pd deficiency, you may not have symptoms. symptoms happen if your red blood cells are exposed to certain chemicals in food or medicine, certain bacterial or viral infections, or stress. they may include paleness jaundice dark urine fatigue shortness of breath enlarged spleen rapid heart rate a blood test can tell if you have it. treatments include medicines to treat infection, avoiding substances that cause the problem with red blood cells, and sometimes transfusions. nih: national library of medicine

MalaCards based summary : Glucosephosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency, also known as g6pd deficiency, is related to hemolytic anemia due to g6pd deficiency and favism. An important gene associated with Glucosephosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency is G6PD (Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Carbon metabolism and Glucose / Energy Metabolism. The drugs Artesunate and chloroquine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, heart and testes.

Disease Ontology : 12 A carbohydrate metabolic disorder that is characterised by abnormally low levels of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (abbreviated G6PD or G6PDH).

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency is a genetic disorder that occurs almost exclusively in males. This condition mainly affects red blood cells, which carry oxygen from the lungs to tissues throughout the body. In affected individuals, a defect in an enzyme called glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase causes red blood cells to break down prematurely. This destruction of red blood cells is called hemolysis.

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase (g6pd) deficiency is a hereditary condition in which red blood cells break down (hemolysis) when the body is exposed to certain foods, drugs, infections or stress. it occurs when a person is missing or has low levels of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. this enzyme helps red blood cells work properly. symptoms during a hemolytic episode may include dark urine, fatigue, paleness, rapid heart rate, shortness of breath, and yellowing of the skin (jaundice). g6pd deficiency is inherited in an x-linked recessive manner and symptoms are more common in males (particularly african americans and those from certain parts of africa, asia, and the mediterranean). it is caused by mutations in the g6pd gene. treatment may involve medicines to treat infection, stopping drugs that are causing red blood cell destruction, and/or transfusions, in some cases. last updated: 5/8/2017
