Answer

The Endocrine Society’s 2012 guidelines in evaluating and treating hypertriglyceridemia included screening adults for this condition as part of a lipid panel at least at 5-year intervals. [42] For pediatric patients with dyslipidemia, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) recommends early diagnosis and management to reduce LDL levels, thereby reducing the risk for cardiovascular events in adulthood.
