1 Answer

The detection allows patients to work with their doctor and to educate themselves about a condition that will affect them to some degree for the rest of their lives.

By knowing about the deficiency and avoiding potential triggering substances and situations, most of those who have G6PD deficiencies can lead relatively normal lives. more
