Cholesterol & Lipid Tests: Frequency
Physicians recommend children to undergo tests to determine if they have a genetic disorder, says Dr. Jonathan Fialkow, Deputy Chief of Cardiology with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
He considers lipid profile could be done every three years if people are healthy. But if someone has any disease, the medical checkup should be more frequently.
The National Lipid Association has a great education material to deal with cardiovascular health as well as the American College Cardiology.
