Concerning number of kids have elevated cholesterol
Date:3/28/2014

ed, he said.

"Kids need to have their cholesterol panel checked at some point during this timeframe [9 to 11 years old]," Seery said. "In doing so, it presents the perfect opportunity for clinicians and parents to discuss the importance of healthy lifestyle choices on cardiovascular health. Our findings give a compelling reason to screen all kids' blood cholesterol."

Because the universal pediatric screening recommendations rolled out at the end of 2011, during the second year of this study, Seery said a potential study limitation is that it is unknown if testing was ordered in a universal manner or selectively based upon individual risk factors or a family history of premature cardiac disease. Recent studies have demonstrated that screening based on family history alone risks missing a large number of children who have dyslipidemia. In addition, the study population was limited to the region in and around Houston.

Further research is needed in order to determine the rate at which primary care providers are following the guidelines since the roll out in 2011, Seery said.
