Extractions: Hypercholesterolemia FH Warning Cure ... Index Familial Hypercholesterolemia Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic disease that is related to the common disease hypercholesterolemia. Unlike hypercholesterolemia, which is a non-genetic disease, patients suffering from familial hypercholesterolemia have a much more serious condition than those people who have high levels of cholesterol. These FH patients have a much higher chance of suffering from heart attacks and stroke. Hypercholesterolemia describes the people with high levels of cholesterol . In other words, the people who have too much cholesterol circulating in their bloodstream. It is the result of the overproduction and/or underutilization of Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL). Hypercholesterolemia is a silent disease. No symptoms will occur until the resulting chest pain of a heart attack or the symptoms of a stoke. Familial Hypercholesterolemia is a genetic disease that causes a major problem. It is a very common disease in humans. There is a mutation in the genetic encoding for the LDL receptors (LDLR gene) that are located on the surface of the liver cells. The function of these receptors is to pick up the circulating plasma LDL to be processed in the liver's cholesterol management. As the result of the lack of activity, the LDL particles are not recycled and are circulating in the bloodstream, a condition of hypercholesterolemia. Because FH occurs from

Extractions: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) OMIM 143890 ) is an autosomal-dominant disorder of metabolism caused by lowering of the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) clearance from blood. The genetic causes of FH are the mutations in the specific LDL receptor gene. The FH patients are characterized by an increase of blood plasma cholesterol and especially of LDL cholesterol. This increase in LDL cholesterol leads to the development of atherosclerosis and premature myocardial infarction in FH patients. FH is one of the most common monogenic disorders in man with the prevalence 1:500 in most populations. The LDL receptor gene mutation spectrum is specific for different ethnic groups. The FH diagnostics is based both on clinical features of patients and on knowledge of mutations leading to the development of FH in each country.

Familiar Hypercholesterolemia - West Virginia What is FH? FH or familial hypercholesterolemia is an inherited disorder which causes cholesterol levels to be elevated. One in every 250500 people have FH. http://www.wvdhhr.org/bph/oehp/hp/cardio/fh.htm
Extractions: WV DHHR BPH OEHP ... HP What is FH? FH or Familial Hypercholesterolemia is an inherited disorder which causes cholesterol levels to be elevated. One in every 250-500 people have FH. People with this inherited disorder lack LDL (low density lipoproteins) receptors or molecules which can identify cholesterol. LDL receptors on the cell membrane take cholesterol into the cell and break it down, so that the HDL (high density lipoproteins) can carry the cholesterol to the liver to be excreted from the body People with FH have fewer receptors on their cell membranes and therefore have elevated cholesterol in their blood, because the cholesterol cannot get into the cell to be carried to the liver. Thus, fewer receptors lead to elevated cholesterol which causes plaque formation and coronary artery disease. The elevated cholesterol levels in the blood cause an increased risk of early death secondary to heart disease. For example, people with FH have an increased chance of having a heart attack at an extremely early age. Even without other risk factors such as obesity, men may have a heart attack when they are 40-55 years old and women may have a heart attack when they are 50-65 years old.

His plasma LDL cholesterol level ranged from 463 to 500 mg per deciliter (12 to 13 mmol per liter). Twice-monthly treatment with selective LDL filtration, with the use of apheresis and a macromolecular exclusion filter (pore size, approximately 2 x daltons), was begun and was subsequently supplemented
