Below left we see the industry’s engineered scoring system for FH; on the right, a scoring system for FCH.  The enabler is the fact that although FH has been precisely defined at the genetic level, the exact cause of FCH is still up in the air. So removing emphasis on genetic definition and removing the criteria which distinguishes the FCH from the FH – Triglyceride levels – blends the FCH with the FH.
