Facts about Autism, Down Syndrome, Sickle Cell Disease, and Diabetes:

 

  •  Autism statistics identify around 1 in 68 American children as being on the autism spectrum and this can increase in prevalence in 40 years. ASD affects over 2 million individuals in the U.S. and tens of millions worldwide.

 

  •  Down syndrome remains the most common chromosomal condition diagnosed in the U.S, affecting 1 in every 700 babies born in the U.S. making Down Syndrome the most common genetic condition. Approximately 400,000 Americans have Down syndrome and about 6,000 babies with Down syndrome are born in the United States each year.

 

  •  Sickle cell disease (SCD) affects millions of people throughout the world and is particularly common among those whose ancestors came from sub-Saharan Africa; Spanish-speaking regions in the Western Hemisphere (South America, the Caribbean, and Central America); Saudi Arabia; India; and Mediterranean countries such as Turkey, Greece, and Italy.

 

  •  Sickle cell disease affects 90,000 to 100,000 Americans. Sickle cell disease occurs among about 1 out of every 500 African- American births. 1 out of every 36,000 Hispanic-American births.

  •  sickle cell trait occurs among about 1 in 12 Blacks or African Americans.

 

  •  Prediabetes is a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be called diabetes. It is estimated that 79 million adults aged 20 and older have prediabetes.  

 

  •  25.8 million Americans have diabetes — 8.3 percent of the U.S. population. Of these, 7 million do not know they have the disease.

 

  •  The number of people diagnosed with diabetes has risen from 1.5 million in 1958 to 18.8 million, an increase of epidemic proportions.

 

  •  Diabetes is one of the most prevalent diseases in the United States. Lack of awareness about diabetes, combined with insufficient access to health services and essential medicines, can lead to complications such as blindness, amputation and kidney failure.
