Although atherosclerosis mainly occurred in the middle -aged and elderly people, the pathological process of early onset of the disease had begun during childhood.

In recent years, as children and adolescent obese rates have continued to rise and the number of adverse lifestyles has increased, the prevalence of hypertrophy of hypertrophic allerology has increased significantly. And the study found that there are abnormal development trajectories in children with abnormal blood lipids in children. U.S. researchers conducted blood lipid tests on more than 15,000 children and found that the average bad cholesterol level gradually increased from 3 to 10 years old, decreased at the age of 10 to 15, and then increased to adult levels again. Among them, bad cholesterol reaches its peak at the age of 9 to 11, and has higher levels among girls, African and Weight indexes. Therefore, researchers suggest that blood lipid screening should be performed at the age of 9 to 11 to achieve early intervention.

Bad cholesterol is the image of low -density lipoprotein cholesterol. The abnormal elevation of this indicator is the main risk factor for cardiovascular disease. If the level of bad cholesterol in children is high, it will continue to adulthood and promote the occurrence of atherosclerosis. Therefore, understanding the level of bad cholesterol in children is especially important for preventing atherosclerosis.

At a young age, he was abnormal by blood lipids, mainly due to genetic defects, as well as environmental factors such as overeating, partial food, lack of exercise, mental tension, and irregular life. When the blood lipid metabolism is disordered, oxidation and bad cholesterol can directly damage endothelial cells and deposit on the blood vessel wall. When children’s blood lipid metabolism disorders can cause repeated pancreatitis and multiple cub -shaped yellow tumors. The most serious harm is to cause atherosclerotic sclerosis cardiovascular disease and even induce sudden death. If children have hypercholesterol and without treatment, they can cause coronary atherosclerotic heart disease during adolescence. Therefore, early intervention must be strengthened. First of all, improve daily diet, and under the premise of ensuring nutritional balance, eat more foods with low -fat, low -saturated fat, and low cholesterol. Secondly, children with more outdoor exercise and obese children can ask doctors to formulate exercise plans. Children with diet and exercise intervention are not satisfactory, and children with severe hypertropenne dehomatosis should consider drug treatment. Third, take children’s physical examination regularly, especially children aged 9 to 11, and can conduct universal blood lipids.
