my son was diagnose with g6pd defiency. which means he doesn't have enough G6 enzymes. pretty much he has to stay away from moth balls, he can't take any antibiotics with "sulf" in it, no antimalarial meds. it can cause him to have hemolytivc anemia which makes his red blood cells burst and he can get jaundice. this is the first I ever heard of this has anyone else heard of this defiency before?
