New Cholesterol Guidelines Focus on Personalized Approach

A lifelong approach to lowering cholesterol, starting in some kids as young as 2, is the United States’ best bet to lower everyone’s risk of heart attack and stroke, according to updated guidelines released by the American Heart Association (AHA).

 

“Personalized” cholesterol-fighting tactics recommended by the guidelines include:

 

  • More detailed risk assessments, to help figure out a person’s specific risk of heart disease, including the use of CT scans to detect hardened arteries.
  • Harder-hitting cholesterol drugs should be added on top of statins for high-risk people who are struggling to lower their levels.
  • Initial cholesterol blood tests for kids between the ages of 9 and 11 to gauge their lifetime risk early, including tests for children as young as 2 with a family history of heart disease or high cholesterol.
