Patient Video - When did you find out you had Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS)? How was it diagnosed?

Charles describes the long and uncertain process he went through leading up to his diagnosis of Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS). After an attack of acute pancreatitis over a decade ago, he spent years in and out of the hospital due to pancreatitis. Blood tests revealed he had high triglyceride levels, but his condition remained undiagnosed. Despite strict diet changes and other efforts to stay healthy, his triglyceride levels remained abnormally high. During a more recent hospital visit, a different blood test was ordered and his diagnosis of FCS was confirmed.
