However, breastfeeding an infant with G6PD deficiency
could lead to hemolytic anemia.
77pc had G6PD deficiency
, an inherited glucose deficiency that affects functions of red blood cells, while a slight increase in the prevalence of other genetic diseases was registered.
Early phagocytosis of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficient erythrocytes parasitized by Plasmodium falciparium may explain malaria protection in G6PD deficiency
According to UAE GDA, the most common genetic disorders in UAE include thalassemia, sickle cell anaemia, haemophilia, G6PD deficiency
and cystic fibrosis.

The most common genetic blood disorder in the Omani society is the G6PD deficiency
as 28% of males and 12% of females have the gene of the disease.
5% of world population carry one or two genes for G6PD deficiency
In active G6PD deficiency
, Heinz bodies can be seen in red blood cells on a blood film, liver enzymes (to exclude other causes of jaundice) and Lactate dehydrogenase (elevated in hemolysis and a marker of hemolytic severity).
Hemolytic anemia after voluntary ingestion of henna (Lawsonia inermis) decoction by a young girl with G6PD deficiency
5] The aim of this study was to find out the prevalence of frequency of sickle cell disease, G6PD deficiency
, and [alpha] and [beta] thalassemia in healthy tribal medical students and to increase their own awareness about the disease they are experiencing and increase sensitization toward social awareness.
