G6PD? Is that an upgrade from R2D2 or CP30?

i dont think so..G6PD means Glucose-6 phosphate dehydrogenase.its a condition wherein the body doesn't have enough enzymes.

I read some about this condition. It sounds like the only things that you cannot eat are fava beans and certain antibiotics. Issues with red blood cells, though, can cause you to have anemia, so making sure you get enough iron is very important. Sometimes you need to take an iron supplement, because food alone will not provide you with enough iron. You should consult a doctor before taking an iron supplement, though, especially if you are going to give it to a young child.
