Table 2 G6PD activity among the study population by the reference enzymatic method

From: Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency among Yemeni children residing in malaria-endemic areas of Hodeidah governorate and evaluation of a rapid diagnostic test for its detection

Reference values of G6PD activity (U/gHb) Female (n = 181) Male (n = 219) Adjusted male (n = 194)a
Range 0.14–18.45 0.21–15.94 1.23–15.94
Median (IQR) 4.7 (4.1–5.5) 4.7 (3.9–5.7) 5.0 (4.3–5.7)
  1. G6PD glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, U/gHb units per gram haemoglobin, SD standard deviation, IQR interquartile range
  2. aReference values were re-calculated after excluding severe G6PD deficiency, and the adjusted male median G6PD activity was used to represent 100 % enzyme activity
