High Cholesterol – Medical Specialists Thoughts

"A lot of parents don't think about cholesterol in their kids," pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears says. "We're supposed to be checking it really early, even as early as age 2, especially if there's a family history of high cholesterol. In some families, you may be healthy, and exercise and eat right, but still, your cholesterol can be a little bit high."

"Some people are going to be predisposed, based on genetics, to have high cholesterol," ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains, "That doesn't mean that you can't take steps in your life to lower your numbers. If you do all the right things, there are some people who still need to be on cholesterol-lowering medications."
