Misleading article, as most people with FH can manage their cholesterol with statins with or without ezetimibe or a bile acid sequestrant. The article makes it sound like all FH patients need 3-4 drugs and/or LDL apheresis, which isn't true. Also, the risk of heart disease is 3-4 times over the lifespan, not 20 times, in people with heterozygous FH, on average. As with most diseases, there are people who are more severely affected or who aren't helped by existing therapies.
About a million Americans have an inherited condition that defies cholesterol-lowering statins. Even at $14,600 a year, a new drug provides hope.

The latest cholesterol guideline identifies more people as candidates for treatment with statins. But the decision about taking a daily pill to reduce heart disease risk is more personal than ever.
