Points you must keep in mind if you have a family history of high cholesterol
 
New Delhi, May 31, 2016: Typically if someone is diagnosed with cardiovascular ailments when they are below the age of 55 years (men) and 65 years (women) they are believed to be suffering from premature heart disease. “In such patients, the prevalence of dyslipidemia, a condition characterised by high cholesterol levels without any evident symptoms is about 75-85%”, said Padma Shri Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India and Honorary Secretary General IMA. 

Fifty-four percent of all patients with premature heart disease and 70% of those with a lipid abnormality have a familial disorder. Screening for lipids is therefore recommended for first-degree relatives of patients with MI (particularly if premature).
