Final Recommendation Statement: Screening for Lipid Disorders in Children and Adolescents
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released today a final recommendation statement on screening for lipid disorders in children and adolescents. The Task Force concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for lipid disorders in children and adolescents 20 years or younger. To view the recommendation and the evidence on which it is based, please go to http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/UpdateSummaryFinal/lipid-disorders-in-children-screening1. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the August 9 online issue of JAMA.
