Your family has a condition known as familial hypercholesterolaemia. It is essential that you find out as early as possible if your baby is affected as well, but I would wait until your baby is at least 2 years old. The problems with this condition only occur in adult life. It is still a very good idea to keep her on a low fat diet eg skim milk, no butter, little if any cheese, limited eggs, few sweets and be especially careful with her eating fatty red meat.Even eating chicken skin can raise cholesterol levels.I am sure that you know all about the correct diet to follow.
