Q:

How often should I have my cholesterol checked?

A:

Guidelines currently suggest that adults should be screened in their early years to determine cholesterol levels. Follow-up is based on cardiovascular risk and cholesterol levels, with high-risk individuals monitored regularly (once a year or more). It is important to maintain a relationship with your physician to guide when your levels should be measured, and assist with lowering your cholesterol if necessary.
