G6PD Test Cost

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase is a full-form of G6PD. Alternatively, it is known as G6PD screen and RBC G6PD test. This deficiency is one of the most common human enzyme deficiency in the world. Since ‘X’ chromosome carries the gene for G6PD enzyme, this deficiency mostly affects males; females in some cases pass on this disease to their unborn child. The two major conditions associated with G6PD deficiency are hemolytic anaemia and neonatal jaundice, which may result in neurological complications. Screening and detection of G6PD deficiency helps in reducing such complications.

G6PD is an enzyme present in the blood and is essential for proper functioning of body-cells. This enzyme is a catalyst for normal functioning of red blood cells. Naturally, a deficiency of this enzyme causes breakdown of red blood cells that is a genetic condition.

In extreme cases of G6PD deficiency, hemolytic anemia is the end result wherein red blood cells get destroyed at an extreme rapid pace in comparison to production of bone marrow. Consumption of certain medications like malarial medicines, sulfonamides for certain conditions, anti-inflammation medicines, can trigger deficiency of this enzyme and hence are advised to be avoided.

Symptoms like shortness of breath, dizziness, pale skin, dizziness, fatigue, symptoms of jaundice, all indicate deficiency of G6PD enzyme. And in turn, chances of having hemolytic anemia as well. The before-mentioned symptoms may prompt the doctor to order a G6PD test. Deficiency of G6PD is seen in new-borns who have jaundice from a long period of time. These symptoms are not visible if the female is suffering from this deficiency. This test also helps in monitoring success of on-going treatments.

The doctor draws a small blood sample for testing deficiency of G6PD. The drawing of blood does not require more than 5 minutes and is easily executed. Hemoglobin testing and complete blood count test can be done in conjunction with a G6PD test. 8.8 - 13.4U/g Hb are the normal value ranges of G6PD test. Similarly, if results are not adhering to normal ranges, then that points towards G6PD deficiency.

G6PD Test FAQs
Q: What is G6PD deficiency?
A: Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is a genetic condition which causes premature rapid breakdown of red blood cells. This results in hemolytic anemia.
Q: Who are affected by G6PD deficiency?
A: G6PD deficiency mostly affects males. Females are usually the carriers of the disease and can pass this on to their children.
Q: What are the signs and symptoms of G6PD deficiency?
A: Fever, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, dizziness and paleness of the eyes are the most commonly seen symptoms. The urine is usually dark yellow to orange in color along with symptoms of jaundice being seen.
Q: What triggers G6PD deficiency?
A: This deficiency can be triggered by consuming antimalarial drugs, NSAIDs, aspirin or sulfonamides. Certain legumes or fava beans can trigger this condition as well.
Q: How is G6PD test performed?
A: This test is done by performing advanced investigations on a blood sample withdrawn from a vein. CBC, reticulocyte count and serum hemoglobin tests are often performed together with this test.
