PARTICIPATE in a screening programme

Screening programmes are designed to detect disease early so interventions can be undertaken to halt progression or cure.These tests are not diagnostic tests. Diagnostic tests are not always correct and can occassionaly give a false positive or false negative result. Your probability of having a disease prior to having a test alters the likelihood of the accuracy of a result. If you have risk factors, a family history or high genetic risk score for disease you may choose to undertake one of these tests.

Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Screening Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Screening
FH is short for Familial Hypercholesterolemia. It is an inherited disorder that leads to aggressive and premature cardiovascular disease. This includes problems like heart attacks, strokes, and even narrowing of our heart valves. For individuals with FH, although diet and lifestyle are important, they are not the cause of high LDL. In FH patients, genetic mutations make the liver incapable of metabolizing (or removing) excess LDL. The result is very high LDL levels which can lead to premature cardiovascular disease (CVD).
