FH Awareness Day

FH Awareness Day 2021

FH Awareness Day was established in 2012 by the FH Foundation to raise awareness of familial hypercholesterolemia worldwide. Together, we raise our voices in our local communities, clinics and social media, and help people #KnowFH.

Familial Hypercholesterolemia is the most common, life-threatening, genetic condition in the world that causes high cholesterol. People with FH have a high amount of low density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad cholesterol” due to a mutation in one of the genes that controls the way cholesterol is cleared by the body.
