Real family living with high lipoprotein(a)

1 in 5 Americans have high Lp(a)

So many people are told high cholesterol and heart disease simply "runs in the family," so they shrug it off without a second thought. They're never told that a hidden cause of heart disease could be why. Genetic cholesterol disorders are very common but almost never diagnosed. One of these disorders is high lipoprotein(a), also known as Lp(a).

How at risk are you?

The quickest way to peace of mind is creating a plan of attack based on your risk factors. Find out about your family history of heart disease and discuss Lp(a) with your doctor. Download this free resource to help you.

March 24 is Lp(a) Awareness Day! In honor of this day we are offering free lipoprotein(a) and lipid screening while supplies last!
