Update from the Field
July 20, 2008
Tharindu has been receiving support and treatment from Real Medicine for 3 years now, for his condition, Familial Hypercholesterolemia, an autosomal dominant disorder that causes severe elevations in total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLc). Dr. Martina Fuchs met Tharindu shortly after the Tsunami in which he sadly lost his mother, Malani Muthumala, and his father, M.P. Chandana, a fisherman. Tharindu’s aunt, Ginta Muthumala, had taken on guardianship for him. Now 16 years old, Tharindu enjoys good health, performs well in school and looks to his future with confidence.
