Those delicious fava beans! Complimentary to many world recipes because of their distinct flavor and texture, fava beans are native to North Africa and Asia and can be found just about everywhere. While called a bean, fava beans are actualities peas. Fava beans are also some of the oldest plants farmed dating back to the Middle East some 8000 years ago. In parts of the world, some individuals have a deficiency of the enzyme glucose-6-dehydrogenase(G6DP). This catalyst is crucial for the production of red blood cells. G6PD deficiency is the most common genetic disorder among UAE nationals, as per the UAE Genetic Diseases Association. When G6DP deficient people consume fava beans, they may develop an anemia that could lead to their death. In fact, Lancet reported that G6PD deficiency has resulted in 4,100 deaths in 2013. Signs and symptoms typically include anemia, jaundice, pallor, tiredness, fast heart beating, fast breathing and dark colored urine. There is no cure.
On Wednesday, September 28, 2016, from 8-9am PST Dr. Gude will present a case discussion on Glucose 6 Dehydrogenase deficiency. Please review the time in your international location for this yummy ONLINE presentation.
