Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
G6 in or glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase is an enzyme that has the function to protect red blood cells from damage and early destruction. G6 on deficiency is a genetic disease in which the enzyme G6 is not produced in sufficient quantities so that sufferers are more prone to anemia due to destruction of red blood cells or so-called hemolytic anemia.
Triggers for hemolytic anemia in people with G6 on deficiency can vary, including:
bacterial or viral infections
There are several types of drugs that really should be avoided in people with G6 in deficiency because it is certain to cause hemolytic, but there are also those that only might cause hemolytic (not necessarily the case). You can open the following link to find out a list of medicines that G6 sufferers should not consume on deficiency.
Omeprazole is not included in the list of drugs that G6 sufferers should avoid in deficiency, so you can take it.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
