The role of diet and lifestyle in managing familial hypercholesterolemia

A genetic condition known as Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) causes the body to metabolise cholesterol differently, which leads to elevated levels of LDL cholesterol, generally referred to as "bad" cholesterol. The likelihood of getting cardiovascular disease, such as heart attack and stroke, is increased by this condition. Diet and lifestyle modifications are crucial parts of controlling FH, in addition to drugs like statins that can help manage high cholesterol levels.
