Aim: Screening of dyslipidemia in childhood has been controversial. While some guidelines recommend screening for dyslipidemia in children, others emphasize that there is insufficient evidence for screening for dyslipidemia in those less than 20 years of age. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the outcomes of a lipid screening program and reveal the pros and cons of this program.
