Blood donation could provide an opportunity for screening for familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH), according to a proof-of-concept study.

The researchers analysed deidentified data from 2002 to 2016 on blood donors aged 16 and older who donated to a large US blood program that routinely measures total non-fasting serum cholesterol.
