Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia - HoFH
What if you had high cholesterol but diet, exercise and commonly used medications couldn’t lower your cholesterol to a recommended level? This frightening condition is real. It’s called HoFH or Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia, and people inherit it from both of their parents. Watch this “Behind the Mystery: Rare and Genetic Diseases” segment as we talk with Dr. Pamela Morris, Cardiologist, Amanda, a 20 year old patient, and Katherine Wilemon from the FH Foundation about the signs, symptoms and what everyone should know about this condition – including that there are treatment options that have been approved in the last year for adults with this disorder.
