Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency

Glucose-6-phosphate deficiency is a genetic disorder that causes red blood cells, which transport oxygen from the lungs to tissues throughout the body. Hemolysis (red blood cell death) is a disorder that causes red blood cells to diliate. Hemolytic anemia, the most common medical condition related to glucose-6-phosphate deficiency, is hemolytic anemia, which occurs when red blood cells are destroyed faster than the body can replace them. Hemophilic anemia is most commonly caused by bacterial or viral infections, as well as certain medications in diabetics with glucose-6-phosphate deficiency. Hemolytic anemia can also occur after eating fava beans or inhaling pollen from fava plants.
