    Hi, Most individuals with G6PD deficiency remains asymptomatic since it is X-linked recessive disease and can be transferred to the child. G6PD deficiency patients are required to keep their diet low in fats but there is no such specification for proteins as proteins are metabolized in a separate pathway. But still as a precautionary measure, I would advise you to opt for natural sources of proteins and also an opinion with a nutritionist in this regard. A concomitant use of antioxidants can help you to certain extent in your digestion. Hope this helps.
