Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an inherited disorder of cholesterol metabolism leading to premature coronary heart disease. 1 in 300 West Australians have FH but 80% of cases are not diagnosed. The early diagnosis and treatment of FH can delay or prevent the onset of Coronary Heart Disease.
 
Objectives of the group
The aim of establishing a FH Support Group is to improve information, communication and support services for families with FH in Western Australia and help prevent premature deaths caused by high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. 
 
Activities and Services
• Providing information, advice and support
• Supporting health professional awareness
• Providing a network for individuals and their families with inherited high cholesterol
• Promoting healthier lifestyle options.
