Hi, I'm new ... And was hoping someone could help... I just found out my dads two brothers and female cousin have fh... My cousins cholesterol was 8.4 .
My dad had his cholesterol tested a few years back and it was high(5.4 I think) I also had mine done a few years back and it was high (6.5 ) I have pcos and just put it down to that.. Do you think I should be tested again and let my doctor know this has come to light? My dad is away for the next 3 weeks so he can't do any thing right now ...
I find this slightly worrying, as my grandad and uncle on my mums side have both had heart attacks although I don't know details.
Any advice/info would be amazing .. Thank you in advance.
