What is G-6-PDH assay used for?
G-6-PDH is an enzyme found in every cell in the body which is used to break down carbohydrates and release their energy. G-6-PDH has two main products, NADPH and Ribose-5-Phosphate.
When levels of G-6-PDH are low, RBCs become particularly vulnerable to haemolysis, also known as breaking down. If the bone marrow cannot increase its production of RBCs to compensate for this breakdown, haemolytic anaemia can occur.
