G6PD Deficiency Foundation
The g6pd Deficiency Foundation, Inc.’s purpose is to provide a website that has effective and enriching G6PD Deficiency information based on valid research and reported cases. Through the implementation of educational seminars & literature to the general public and medical community, we hope to encourage G6PD deficient individuals to live a healthy life.
Get educated on the basics of this enzyme deficiency, the populations it affects, as well as the statistics behind it all.
What methods are available, who should be screened, and what are the challenges with each of the available options for screening.
Brody’s Battle happened in the first ten days of his life and nearly ended it, leaving him with terrible brain damage caused by a condition called Kernicterus. Our foundation was started to spare other newborns such life-threatening events by raising awareness of how undiagnosed G6PD deficiency can cause Jaundice. A Kernicterus event can occur if neonatal Jaundice is not properly managed.

We need to hear from those who are diagnosed with G6PD deficiency. Your participation will help prioritize the efforts of the Foundation. Thank you.
The Foundation wants to provide the most up to date information on G6PDd and needs your support. You can help G6PD Awareness by taking action.
Time For Change
It is very difficult for one to lead a normal healthy life when they do not know they have G6PD Deficiency. Your support can allow us to continue educating everyone about G6PD Deficiency. It’s time for this enzyme deficiency to be known in every household.
