Finding a healthcare provider that understands how to diagnose and treat familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) and elevated Lp(a) is critical for good care. FH specialists understand that individuals with FH are at much higher risk for heart disease than someone with “garden variety” high cholesterol. They can make sure the right treatment plan is put in place. Knowledge of Lipoprotein(a) is growing, so it is important to get an opinion from a clinician who is up-to-date on the latest research.

Healthcare providers that specialize in FH and Lp(a) can include lipid specialists, preventive cardiologists, endocrinologists, pediatricians, nurse practitioner, physicians assistants and genetic counselors.

If you have trouble finding an FH Specialist in your area, contact the FH Foundation at info@theFHFoundation.org or 844-434-6334. We will be happy to locate one for you.
