The Center for Advanced Pediatrics evaluates all patients for hyperlipidemia every 3 years starting at 5 year of age. The blood test is drawn at the physical and no longer needs to be fasting.
Any child with elevated lipids/cholesterol will be referred to our Endocrine and Nutrition department for management.
