DOWNLOAD FH (UK) Fact Sheet
This downloadable (UK Version) double-sided patient fact sheet focuses on awareness, prevalence, and health risks associated with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). FH is the most common genetic metabolic disorder, which when not recognized and treated appropriately, can leads to premature coronary heart disease (CHD). When recognized and treated appropriately, the high CHD risk associated with FH can be reduced to levels similar to the general population. This makes early detection essential. As an autosomal dominant disorder, all first degree relatives of people with FH have 50% chance of having FH as well, making family education and screening an important responsibility for health care providers.
