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.
Edema is the swelling of tissues as a result of excess water accumulation. Peripheral edema occurs in the feet and legs. There are two types of edema, non-pitting edema and pitting edema. Causes of pitting edema is caused by systemic diseases (most commonly involving the heart, liver, and kidneys), and medications. Local conditions that cause edema are thrombophlebitis and varicose veins. Edema or swelling of the legs, feet, ankles, and face are common during pregnancy. Idiopathic edema is edema in which the cause is not known. Pitting edema is scored on pitting edema measurement scales. Edema is generally treated with medication.
