However, breastfeeding an infant with G6PD
deficiency could lead to hemolytic anemia.
Later on he was tested for G6PD
enzyme and found deficient in G6PD
As anticipated, the cells in these transgenic animals are more resistant to highly toxic artificial oxidative treatments, thus proving that an increase in G6PD
really improves antioxidant defences," explains Sandrina NEbrega-Pereira, first author of the study and currently a researcher at the Institute of Molecular Medicine of the University of Lisbon.
When no methylene blue is added, methemoglobin persists; but, incubation of the samples with methylene blue allows stimulation of the pentose phosphate pathway in subjects with normal G6PD
Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia in G6PD
The possibility of coexistent G6PD
deficiency was excluded as the patient was elderly and had no past medical history or family history of the condition.
According to Sachdev, the treatment procedure had to be changed as tests revealed that the patient suffered from G6PD
Baseline Clinical evaluation Careful history and physical Examination Laboratory evaluation CBC with differential WBC count and reticulocyte count Serum chemistry including liver function test and renal function tests Urinalysis G6PD
level Follow up Clinical Evaluation Careful history and physical Examination Laboratory evaluation Hemolysis: Especially in G6PD
-deficient patients; CBC count with differential WBC count and reticulocyte count every 2 wk.
status was determined using the standard methaemoglobin reduction test.
The etiology of which could not have been clarified by the above mentioned analyses were further investigated for serum levels of G6PD
and pyruvate kinase tandem mass spectrometry (MS) and TORCH"; and for urinalysis culture and reducing substances.
Phenazopyridine should not be administered to patients with G6PD
Exceptions of this include G6PD
and gluthatione synthetase deficiency which are characterized with acute hemolytic attacks.
