Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) | American Heart Association
Nov 09, 2020 · Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an inherited defect in how the body recycles LDL (bad) cholesterol. As a result, LDL levels in the blood remain very high – in severe cases, levels can reach above 190 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) of blood. People with FH are essentially born with high LDL cholesterol.
