Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi..., the Glucose 6 phosphate deficiency is a genetic disorder,... since it is a autosomal recessive disease, if both the parents are affected by same disorder, the chances of having the diseased child is 50%... but still 50% of the children can also be normal.. better get counseled before getting married...
Hope I have answered your question..
