However, new research shows the risk of heart problems still lingers for people with a family history of the condition.

Such patients have nearly six times the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke than those with healthier cholesterol numbers.

52% of adults treated for high cholesterol caused by familial hypercholesterolemia still had LDL measurements over 100mg/dL.
