Team Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is the most severe form of the genetic disease familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). HoFH occurs when a child inherits the FH gene from both parents. It is a metabolic disorder which causes severely elevated LDL-cholesterol levels from birth and, if untreated, can lead to aggressive coronary artery disease, heart attacks, and even death at a very early age.
