Who should be tested for genetically elevated cholesterol, or familial hypercholesterolemia? And how do we decide when and how to treat? Host Dr. Alan Brown talks with Dr. Jennifer G. Robinson, director of the Lipid Research Clinic and co-director of the Prevention Intervention Center at the University of Iowa. They discuss who is at risk in families, what age to start testing children, as well as treatment guidelines for children, adolescents, adult men, and women before and after childbearing age. For example, how do we treat children who test positive for familial hypercholesterolemia as young as two years of age?
