  • Overview

    The National Lipid Association Foundation is emphasizing awareness of the most common inherited form of high cholesterol, familial hypercholesterolemia. Endocrinologist Dr. Anne Goldberg, talks with host Dr. Alan Brown about how to recognize and treat this hereditary cause of early onset atherosclerosis. Research has shown that statin treatment should begin when patients are very young. How early in life can we start screening and treating children, and are there differences to consider when treating young male versus female patients?
