Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of Glucose-6-Phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) status in Plasmodium falciparum malaria infected individuals cortisol, malondialdehyde (MDA), blood glucose and blood lipid profile. The study was conducted at Federal Medical Centre, Ido-Ekiti, Nigeria. Two hundred and two blood samples were collected twice from each malaria infected individuals. Thick blood film was made and stained with Giemsa’s staining technique for malaria parasite detection; Glucose-6-Phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) was performed using methaemoglobin reduction method. Data obtained was analysed using SPSS version 16. The result of this present study showed that the mean±SD of cortisol and malondialdehyde (MDA) in G6PD normal were higher compared to G6PD deficient in pre and post anti-malaria drug treatment. Cortisol levels increased in patients with P.falciparum malaria infection, which decline as the clinical condition improved and parasitaemia decrease during anti malaria treatment.
