About FH...






Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is the most serious dominantly inherited disorder of lipid metabolism that results in markedly elevated levels of plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and enhanced coronary artery disease progression. FH is present from birth and approximately 90% of the cause is a mutation in the LDL-c receptor which controls the clearance of cholesterol from the blood.

FH affects approximately 1:200 -1:300 individuals in Australia and unfortunately is significantly undetected and untreated.
