FH is a global health problem- FH Awareness Day 24th September
"FH is a global health problem but sadly there is a severe lack of awareness, identification and optimal treatment across the world and the UK is no different."
Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH for short) is an inherited condition which can lead to extremely high cholesterol levels. It is passed down through families in the genes. Without treatment, FH can lead to heart disease at a very young age. But once it's been diagnosed, it can be treated with medication and a healthy lifestyle.
