Men 35 and Older
The USPSTF strongly recommends screening men aged 35 and older for lipid disorders.
FREQUENCY OF SERVICE
The optimal interval for screening is uncertain. On the basis of other guidelines and expert opinion, reasonable options include every 5 years, shorter intervals for people who have lipid levels close to those warranting therapy, and longer intervals for those not at increased risk who have had repeatedly normal lipid levels.
