Heart UK – The Cholesterol Charity
Providing support, guidance and education services to healthcare professionals and people and families with concerns about cholesterol.
Over half of all UK adults have raised cholesterol. One in 250 people in the UK may be born with a high cholesterol condition called Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH), which means they are at high risk of a heart attack, stroke or sudden death in their 20s, 30s and 40s.
HEART UK is here for anyone affected by raised cholesterol or other blood fats, including triglycerides. We bring people together by providing:
- a Cholesterol Helpline;
- information and support
- education; and
- campaign for improved identification & standards of care.
