Hi Usama.

Thanks for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenous deficiency is a X- linked recessive genetically inherited disease. The supplement that you are using helps to support the joints and connective tissue. IT is a powerful non toxic therapeutic agent that inhibits pain impulses. I suggest you to continue treatment. It is safe.

Hope I answered your query. I will be available for your follow up queries, if any.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
