Asian Americans have historically been upheld as a "model minority," experiencing few health Genetic inherited disorders and diseases (e.g. colorblindness, hemophilia) were reported to be uncommon in all Asian ethnic groups.
What are the dangers of being Asian? This list includes genetic disorders and chronic conditions unique to being Asian by the medical and science communities.
Description:For these people, screening for cystic fibrosis is recommended for all, screening for anemia may be indicated to determine risk for sickle cell anemia and thalassemias, and pan-ethnic expanded carrier screening is available. Expanded screening is a blood test that includes screening for a large number of serious recessive conditions. The screening method genotyping looks for specific genetic changes seen in people of certain ethnic backgrounds at a high frequency, but may miss rarer genetic changes in these genes. As technology becomes more advanced, thorough screening sequencing for many conditions at once may be accessible due to lower costs. Disease Details Alpha thalassemia Alpha thalassemia is a blood condition that can result in fatigue, pallor, weakness and serious complications. People with this condition have low levels of hemoglobin which is needed to carry oxygen in the blood.
