Post a reply: RUTF in G6PD children

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Is the RUTF safe for children with G6PD? If not, what should be done or what is the alternative? We are implementing Integrated management of Acute malnutrition in a city-based, non-emergency setting. Most of these under 5-year old children had newborn screening and some were identified to have G6PD. Since fava beans, legumes, etc are contraindicated to children with G6PD, will the RUTF have effects on these G6PD children?
