Children and Cholesterol

Michelle and Jason Watts take their 7 year old daughter, Avery, to Nemours Children’s hospital every two weeks. Why? Because Avery’s LDL cholesterol was over 800.

Avery is living with the most severe form of familial hypercholesterolemia, HoFH. Familial Hypercholesterolemia causes premature heart disease. If you have FH, your children have a 50% chance of having FH too.
