    A neat summary.. at the end there's loads of links to studies etc for those of a more sciencey bent but the main text tells it all..

    Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an inherited condition that results in high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. ... People who have the familial version will generally have much higher cholesterol levels, as well as heart disease at a much younger age. FH is also known as type 2 hyperlipoproteinemia

    Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere on the forum, but thought it would fit well here.

    Excellent lecture full and easy to follow detail.
    Last few words of Q&A really struck home.
