Normal range: 146-376 Mu/109E

Comment: Low values reflect a congenital enzyme deficiency which may occur in people from the Mediterranean littoral, some of African origin and some Chinese. This may give rise to an acute hemolytic episode. Affected individuals should avoid Fava beans and certain drug (e.g. some antimalarials, sulphonamides and antibodies). An increased reticulocyte count following a hemolytic episode may give rise to a falsely normal result

Sample: EDTA blood, whole blood
