The USPSTF recommends screening all men older than 35 and men younger than 35 if they are at increased risk for CHD. Women older than 20 should be screened if they are at increased risk for CHD. The overall benefit of screening for lipid abnormalities for women not at increased risk and for younger men not at increased risk is small (USPSTF, 2008). AAFP agrees with the USPSTF recommendation. The third report of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's National Cholesterol Education Program's Expert Panel on the Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (Adult Treatment Panel III)

recommended screening adults older than age 20 every 5 years (ATP III, 2002).
