Dr. Klaper offers health advice on familial cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) and tells us that high cholesterol doesn’t always mean a high risk for atherosclerosis. It is important to check the artery walls to see what is happening. Familial hypercholesterolemia can mean that genetics and liver function can cause elevated cholesterol. If you are eating a whole food plant-based diet, with no oxidized cholesterol forming on the artery walls, then you may not be at risk for stroke or heart disease.
Question: What can I do if I have familial high cholesterol? Could I fast it away?
