We are looking for patients with familial hypercholesterolemia and for patients who are taking statins for more than 5 years to participate in a clinical study at IRCM. The aim of this study is to examine the function of the fat tissue as well as other health conditions that may affect the risk for type 2 diabetes in these patients. Participants will receive compensation for their time and expense related to this study.
This study is under the supervision of Dr. May Faraj and Dr. Robert Dufour.
