When should I get tested for Cholesterol?

Ask your doctor or health professional for a baseline cholesterol test at age 20 and then have your cholesterol retested at least every five years.

If your test results aren’t within desirable ranges, your doctor may recommend more frequent measurements. Your doctor may also suggest you have more frequent tests if you have a family history of high cholesterol, heart disease or other risk factors, such as smoking, diabetes or high blood pressure.
