Your FH Community
By joining the CASCADE FH patient registry you are now a pioneer in an important initiative to improve the diagnosis and treatment of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). 


FH is a family disease. One of our goals is to dramatically increase family screening of FH. The hope is to find out who in each affected family has inherited FH and treat them early enough to delay the onset of heart disease. 

Here are the first results from those who entered their information into the registry! 
Family Members Diagnosed with FH 
48% of you have family members diagnosed with FH. 
Current estimates are that less than 10% of all of the people in the US who have FH are diagnosed today. 
Encourage your family members check their cholesterol levels and then to talk to their doctors about FH.
