How Often Should I Attend?

The National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines recommend that everyone age 20 and older have a fasting "lipoprotein profile" every five years. You may need to have your cholesterol checked more often than every five years if one or more of these situations applies to you:

  • Your total cholesterol is 200 mg/dL or more.
  • You are a man over age 45 or a woman over age 50.
  • Your HDL (good) cholesterol is less than 40 mg/dL.
  • You have other risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

Ask your primary care provider for guidance on how often you should have your health screening.
