  1. Are parent's self-reported total cholesterol levels useful in identifying children with hyperlipidemia ? An examination of current guidelines.

    Article - En anglais


    Recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Committee on Nutrition adopted the recommendation of the Expert Panel on Blood Cholesterol Levels in Children and Adolescents (NCEP) that children and adolescents with a family history of premature cardiovascular disease or parental hypercholesterolemia (>=240 mg/dL) be screened for hyperlipidemia.

    The rationale for using parental hypercholesterolemia as a screening trigger is based on sensitivity estimates using parents' actual lipid values.

    However, in clinical practice pediatricians may often have to rely on parents' self-reported cholesterol levels to determine a child's family risk history.
