When I was born (27+ years ago), doctors diagnosed me as having G6PD deficiency and a list of food to avoid was provided to my mum.

About 7 years ago, I was called up for government draft and they tested everything among which was 2 tubes of blood samples acquired from my body. The military confirmed that there was no trace of G6PD deficiency in my blood that time.

I consulted private doctors and they all said G6PD deficiency would usually exist throughout lifetime of a patient.

How did my G6PD deficiency vanish?
Was the private doctors I visited less competent?

I searched the net and found no article or discussion pertaining to G6PD deficiency vanish / disappear. Will greatly appreciate any blood experts or views.

I'm no expert, but my first guess is that you were misdiagnosed.

I live in a country where its currency is almost equal to Australian dollar. It's high-tech and many say safest country in the world.

I was prematurely born and G6PD deficiency diagnosis on me was no mistake after few tests.

Somewhere in the world, I heard rare cases of
1. newborn baby HIV positive but became negative few year later
2. boy who had brain tumor but the cancer vanished few months later

I know that rare occurrences are not impossible. Just like to hear from any blood experts if possible.
