The primary presenting features of Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia include abnormally high levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood. This can be easily observed when a blood test is done on routine examination. While the maximum limit of LDL cholesterol should ideally be less than or equal to 239 mg/dL, in this condition the cholesterol levels are in the 600 range, which is more than three times the maximal limit.
The blood oxygen levels indicate the amount of oxygen that the red blood cells are carrying in the body. The body closely monitors the levels of blood oxygen. Controlling the balance of oxygen-saturated blood is very important for your health. If you find that your blood oxygen level significantly below average, then you need to increase the oxygen saturation in the body. This is usually done by providing supplemental oxygen. However, home supplemental oxygen is considered to be a medication, and you can only get it on a doctor's prescription.
