I have FH which means that either my mum or dad had FH (probably my dad but undiagnosed). Unfortunately they are both now dead but neither died from or had heart disease. One of their parents must have had FH but again no heart disease. All were heavy smokers, increasing their risk further. None of them took statins as they did not know they had the condition. My brother had FH (also a smoker) and he did take statins - died of a heart attack! Hmmm, makes you think eh?
