G6PD Deficiency

G6PD Deficiency is one of the most common genetic enzyme deficiencies in the world. Your participation will help prioritize the efforts of the Foundation.

Most at Risk

80% of newborns are jaundice within their first 2 weeks of life. Several conditions are known to increase the risk of turning mild jaundice into catastrophic illness. G6PD Deficiency is one of them.

No Apparent Harm

Most of the time, those who are G6PD deficient suffer no apparent harm. But for some, the effects have the potential to cause attacks of acute hemolytic anemia when exposed to certain triggers.

Spread The Word

Help us spread the word about G6PD, and avoid needless suffering and distress. With support, you can expect G6PD Deficiency Foundation to revise regularly as new G6PDd topics are discovered.

Brody's Battle

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.

This story does not have to happen to another family...



We need to hear from those who are diagnosed with G6PD deficiency. Your participation will help prioritize the efforts of the Foundation. Thank you.
