About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Glucose-galactose malabsorption. The term 'prevalence' of Glucose-galactose malabsorption usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Glucose-galactose malabsorption at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Glucose-galactose malabsorption refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Glucose-galactose malabsorption diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence.
