What is heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH)?
For some people, diet, weight, or physical activity level might not be the primary cause of high LDL. Sometimes high LDL is caused by an inherited condition called HeFH.
HeFH is a common genetic disorder that affects the liver’s ability to remove excess LDL. HeFH is an inherited condition, which means it is caused by an abnormal gene that can be passed down from one or both parents. This can lead to premature cardiovascular disease, as well as other complications caused by high LDL.
