Avoid moth balls, artificial blue food color, legumes (fava beans, beans, peas, peanuts, soy, lentils, etc.), sulfites, tonic water. Please read all labels on processed foods before feeding to patient.

Substances labeled Low Risk MAY be given safely at normal therapeutic doses UNLESS the patient is severely G6PD Deficient or has chronic non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia. There is no guarantee that low risk drugs will not cause hemolysis. Please see g6pddeficiency.org for more information.

A diet rich in antioxidant foods is recommended to help minimize the effects of oxidative stress and the resultant hemolysis. Vitamins b6, b12, folic acid and NAC are also important.
