Hello, I am very concerned for my mother who has very low white blood cell count for about a year. My mother has always been very active,happy & full of life, now shes very tired & always want to be in bed resting, she can start getting ready to go out & then changes her mind & sits or lays back down. No doctor has been able to help her & quite frankly I am irate & with tons of fear for her well being. My father passed away 3 yrs ago & seeing my mother this way is heart breaking. What can be done to help her ?? what can she eat or what medicine can help her ? I need her , shes my best friend & best mom ever.
G6PD is a genetic disorder affecting the red blood cells. In the affected person the defect is found in an enzyme called Glucose -6-phosphate dehydogenase. Deficiency of this enzyme causes premature breakdown of red blood cells leading to hemolysis. Hemolytic anemia is the most common problem caused due to G6PD. In hemolytic anemia, red blood cells are destroyed faster than they are produced. In people suffering from G6PD deficiency, hemolytic anemia is often triggered as a result of bacterial infection or viral infection. Certain drugs are also known to cause hemolytic anemia. Antimalarial drugs, antibiotics, etc are the main. Hemolytic anemia can also occur in a person who has eaten Fava beans and who is having G6PD deficiency. There are several reasons for fluctuation of platelet, but before that let me know the full medical history if you are suffering from any illness.
