Reconciling 1st & 2nd Danish reports using the maximum & minimum numbers mathematically possible

reconciling danish reports, Familial hypercholesterolemia, FH prevalence

It is only after the 2nd report that we learn that AT could not possibly be more than 25, and from here we can make crisp deductions. BX is the larger of the four groups of mutation carriers and they cannot possibly be in the results. These genuine mutation carriers are also the least profitable of possible patients, while the most profitable false positives only require the acceptance of this procedure. The unmentioned gap in the math allows a clinical procedure which effectively renames these errors as “FH,” without leaving anything for a reader to blink at.  The ≥119 real people are abandoned, while in the abstract, false positives fill their void, the published report leaving very real consequences in the diagnostic determination of “FH.”
