Hi haiz;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
No sir G6PD is a deficiency of a sort in blood .In person like you some medicines are contraindicated but as for the test of HIV or any kind it will not affect the result of any test so no need to worry.
Thanks

hello friend.
As you mentioned you are a patient of glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.
In this condition there will breakdown of red blood cells when they come in contact with some particular chemical which have oxidant property.
So, your hiv testing will not be affected by the condition..

Hi there, I have been given this prescription to help with a Yeast Infection in my armpits, I am reading the material in this article and do not see anything related to this, can you help me with that? I have been sick since Nov 14 diagnosed with H.Influenza e, have had both ear infections one ruptured, my hearing is still impaired going to a specialist Jan 28, both eye infections which was quickly cleared and still a sinus infection which is very frustrating. It has been 2 months now....but also just diagnosed with a Mono virus in my liver...so quite the issues at hand. This yeast infection in my armpits has reoccurred for the 3rd time since the summer only using the cream but my dr decided to give me this pill. Would really appreciate your advice. Many thanks. I am a 58 yr old female. Harriet.
