Health concerns - Yes or no?

Hello everyone! I am getting my first hedgie on saturday!!!!! I am so excited. I have chosen an albino because I just fell in love with them and they have, in my eyes, become the cutest color hedgies. I have seen posted several places, *not here*, that albino hedgies normally have health issues because of the albinism or that it is easier for them to become ill because of their lack of pigmentation. Is this true? Do I have anything to worry about? New hedgie owner paranoia?

The breeder I purchased Whyte from reassured me that they do not have any more health issues than others. I am hoping some other people respond as I'm curious too. Am hoping I wasn't just told that to make the sale. So far, so good with him, if that means anything! He's about...four months old now. He is more sensitive to the light than Riley when he's being carried around the house. Congrats on becoming a new hedgie owner!
