Cholesterol Screening recommendations

- October 19, 2009

Each day I review a topic in the literature to see what is likely to change within the recommendations. Today it is cholesterol day!
The ‘acceptable’ blood cholesterol/lipid levels vary with other medical conditions and lifestyle habits. If you have hypertension and are a smoker then what might be acceptable for a person without these risk factors might not be an acceptable risk increase for you. The free health recommendations are based on age and sex alone. If you have other relevant factors – heart condition, family history of heart problems, smoker etc then consider subscribing to see how these impact the recommended screening tests and frequency.
You can review other family members in the Subscription area also. Completely anonymous, no record is made of the parameters checked.
