Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Don’t miss tomorrow’s segment on Access Health!

FH is short for Familial Hypercholesterolemia. It is an inherited disorder that leads to aggressive and premature cardiovascular disease. This includes problems like heart attacks, strokes, and even narrowing of our heart valves. For individuals with FH, although diet and lifestyle are important, they are not the cause of high LDL. In FH patients, genetic mutations make the liver incapable of metabolizing (or removing) excess LDL.

 The result is very high LDL levels which can lead to premature cardiovascular disease.There are two forms of FH. If you have inherited this genetic mutation from one parent, then you will have Heterozygous FH (HeFH). HeFH occurs in 1 in 250 people worldwide. If you inherit FH from both parents, it is much more severe in its consequences. This form of FH is called Homozygous FH (HoFH). It is very rare, occurring in about 1 in 160,000 to one million people worldwide. 90% of patients remain undiagnosed, learn the signs and symptoms on Access Health!

  2. The movie my algorithm gave me was Snow White: A Tale of Terror (directed by Michael Cohn), which went direct to
    video back in 1997 in spite of having Sigourney Weaver because the evil queen. Weaver
    offers a committed efficiency as the evil stepmother,
    and positively devours the surroundings and any supporting player
    who drifts into her orbit. If there’s a cause to see this film in any
    respect, it is Sigourney Weaver. For some motive, this movie jogs my memory of a late-period Hammer film.

    As I discussed, it is a film that squanders opportunities.
    The movie is unworthy of him. That’s the film in a nutshell.
