Hi, I am definitly not a doctor but I may be able to help you. My husband died 8 months ago due to complications from this disease. He had Familial Homozygous Hypercholesterolemia. My son too is showing signs of this disease.I will try my best to help you with whatever questions you may have about this. Please respond to me as soon as possible so I can help you. I send my best to you both until then.
