    Does this mean I am G6PD deficient, I certainly have symptoms of it.

    G6PD rs35972742 +/+ G
    G6PD rs5030870 +/+ C
    G6PD rs72554664 +/+ C
    GBE1 rs3821556 +/+ AA
    SLC37A4 rs11006 +/+ GG
    SLC37A4 rs56258965 -/+ AG
    SLC37A4 rs741811 +/+ AA

    If so what tests can an allopathic doctor do to confirm it is expressing.

    It would be more helpful if you put down the alleles instead of +/+

    From what I understand is that there 400 variations that can cause G6PD. You can see more of them at 23andme.

    But I think these are the two most common, MTHFRSupport lists them.

    Why don't you go to a regular doctor? There is test for it:

    It is a pretty clear disorder to have however, but I wonder if there can be lesser forms of it.

    'Allopathic' is a regular doctor. I have been going to them for 6 years and my opinion of them is very low. They are clueless and lazy so i use them as a tool to get further testing done until I can find a naturopath that isn't trying to sell me snake oil...

    Got ya, apologies. I agree they suck for the difficult things, but there are some things they do well.
