G6PD deficiency is an inherited condition in which the body doesn't have enough of the enzyme Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase {G6PD} - Which helps red blood cells function normally.

This deficiency can cause hemolytic anemia, usually after exposure to certain medications, foods, or even infections.

SEE for starters (Haven't had a chance yet to read this myself):

NOTE: substances that can be harmful to people this condition when consumed — or even touched include Fava Beans and Naphthalene (a chemical found in mothballs and moth crystals).

G6PD Deficiency typically do not show any symptoms of the disorder until their red blood cells are exposed to certain Triggers, which can be:

Curious process this...

However, fro the above link in the Science Database: Worthy of note is maximising Folic Acid adsorption AND minimizing Vitamin K and all its related to...at least from a nutritonal POV.

As always, we need to know the Blood-Type of the individual in question, especially as to making any guesses as to what ingredients/supplements should be critiqued.

I believe the Basic Pack is designed for all individuals per specific ABO group.

I encourage you or your friend to call an NAP representative if you have specific question(s) in regards to certain intolerances/ingredients that may be probelematic.

A NAP representative can help assist you in making a sound decision:

As to the severity of this condition, and as to what can trigger responses from G6PD Deficiency, I am skeptical of this response for this particular situation....If we knew the BT of the individual in volved one could probably say better.

Many thanks . She is type O and for the O diet, she is encouraged to take in food with more Vit K but under the list of drugs that are linked to G6PD, it mentioned  Vitamin K analogues. Any idea if there is any relation between the two ?

Vitamin K analogues, meaning food containing vit K/

Bizarre!! Dr. D would have to answer this...as it Vitamin K in the link should be minimized???

PDRHealth gives agood description of Vitamin K:
http://www.pdrhealth.com/drug_info/nmdrugprofiles/nutsupdrugs/vit_0267.shtml

Suffice to say there are 3 types of Vit. K: K1 {Phylloquinone or as Phytonadione} & K2 {Menaquinones} are what are considered for nutrition.
K3-type, I believe, is the "Analogues".
And once again its the chemicals with '-ones' that should be avoided...
There is also a K-type substance: Napthaquinone, that should be avoided as well..
