For people with inherited high bad cholesterol (familial hypercholesterolemia, or FH) who still need to lower their bad cholesterol with diet alone or together with other cholesterol-lowering medicines.
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 FH.
Heterozygous FH (HeFH) represents one form of this common genetic disorder that affects the liver's ability to remove excess LDL. HeFH is an inherited condition, which means it is caused by one or more abnormal genes 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.
Repatha® + a statin lowered LDL around 60%.*
Repatha® drives LDL down in people with HeFH.
