Familial hypercholesterolaemia – enhancing the care of patients and families

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is a common genetic disorder of LDL-cholesterol, that, if untreated, leads to premature atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). With early diagnosis and initiation of cholesterol-lowering treatment, the risk of ASCVD can be substantially reduced. Yet, many people with FH remain undiagnosed and undertreated. GPs can play an important role in the care of patients and families with FH.
