Educational Series: Familial hypercholesterolaemia

This publication is intended as an educational resource for general practitioners and cardiologists in NZ to  assist with the identification of unrecognised familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) and its care. It emphasises the importance of screening for this prevalent but underdiagnosed disease and gives guidance on early and aggressive treatment. Most patients with FH remain undiagnosed even after presentation with major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE).This review is supported by an educational grant from Sanofi.
