BACKGROUND Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant condition characterised by increased low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c), xanthomata and premature cardiovascular disease. However, it is currently underdiagnosed and undertreated in Australasia. We sought to investigate whether interpretative commenting on lipid profiles could improve FH detection and treatment. METHODS A case-historical control study of individuals with serum LDL-c concentrations ≥6.5 mmol/L; 96… CONTINUE READING
