Hello fellow mums, First of all, I wish to announce that I've given birth to a cute baby boy on the 27th of May. But my paediatric informed me the next night that my baby boy had G6PD deficiency. Actually I don't have a clue what exactly is that. The doc explained that my baby boy will have certain drug allergies and cannot eat certain food for a lifetime!! I'm not sure what kind of drug exactly but I acknowledged that my boy can't take beans-related food, any Chinese medicine and cannot smell or be near to moth-balls. He also have to stay in hospital for a couple of days more for further observation of jaundice. Can anyone advise me further on this G6PD deficiency issues? What are the exact kind of food/things he must avoid? Anywhere I can get more information? My sis-in-law told me that his boy, who is 7year old currently, also have G6PD deficiency. She claimed that it is nothing serious, as it is neither a disease nor any physical impairment.
