Does hypercholesterolemia run in your family? Does anyone else have hypercholesterolemia in your extended family?

How has having family members who have been diagnosed with the same condition helped you in coping and managing?

Does hypercholesterolemia run in the family?

Hi yes. It does run in my family. My father has it and his father and mother had it.

I honestly do not think it helped me. I think if anything it hurt me because bad diet/eating habits were passed down and it was more normalized for me.
