I have searched for info on FH here and found a few things that are several years old.    Is there any new advice on FH that can help me ?  

My Cardiologist feels strongly that I have FH.   If true, I have 1/2 of the ldl receptors in my liver that a normal person has.   I’m currently on 10 mg of crestor that was reduced from 20mg 5 weeks ago.  Doc suggested I go back to 20 mg, but I asked to wait. 

Doc is saying these things based on the basic test, not the nmr stratified type of test.    Today I asked him to order an NMR test.   This will be done in 90 days.    I asked him to wait due to my recent undoctored weight loss.  

    He thinks I have most likely done a great job reducing small ldl particles, and controlling inflammation but my liver is not processing very well. 

My HDL’s did go up 12 percent in 5 weeks, 48 from 43.....good news there

Thanks for any insights....
