How we support Health Professionals
We provide a range of resources and information about the detection, diagnosis and optimum treatment of people with dyslipidaemia who are at increased vascular risk including how these can be managed by diet, lifestyle and medication.
We are committed to the early detection of families with inherited high cholesterol conditions including Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH).
That’s why we provide information, advice & support through our:
- Cholesterol Helpline on 0345 450 5988 (Monday to Friday 10am - 3pm)
- This website with a dedicated section for health professionals, along with sections on health & high cholesterol and cholesterol & diet
We are also committed to raising awareness about the risks of high cholesterol, lobbying for better detection of those at risk, funding research into improved treatment and supporting health professional training and research. It’s also why HEART UK works with a variety of partners including Government, corporate partners and other charities to help promote healthier lifestyle options.n
