Jews and chronic diseases?

Hi, I’m wondering if Jews have somewhat poorer health than many other groups? I’m 27 years old Jewish (Ashkenazi) male and I have ulcerative colitis, asthma, pet allergies, eczema and myopia since age 5 (probably something else too but those are the ones I now remember). My Jewish friend has type 1 diabetes, chronic migraine and lactose intolerance. My another Jewish friend has asthma, slight scoliosis, myopia and psoriasis. Those were just some examples of other Jews in my life with also health problems. Is this just my friends and family or do you have similar experience?
