Familial Hypercholesterolemia

FH Patient Handout

The Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association has developed an atrial fibrillation patient handout for your use.

What You Need to Know: Familiar Hypercholesterolemia

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.
