Animation - Diagnosing Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS)

This animation provides an overview of how Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS) is diagnosed. Doctors look for 3 things when diagnosing FCS: a blood test to measure triglyceride levels, a patient’s response to drugs that lower triglyceride levels, and a history of frequent episodes of abdominal pain or pancreatitis. This animation also describes the gene changes associated with FCS, genetic testing, the challenges of living with FCS, and clinical trials for new drug treatments.
