Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Patient Tearsheet: What you need to know about FH

This double-sided patient handout focuses on awareness, prevalence, causes, and risks of Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). FH is the most common genetic metabolic disorder, which when not recognized and treated appropriately, leads to premature coronary heart disease (CHD).

As an autosomal dominant disorder, all first degree relatives of people with FH have a 50% chance of having FH as well, making family education and screening an important responsibility for health care providers.
