When should you start having your cholesterol levels checked?

Australian guidelines state that it’s advisable to have a blood test to check your lipid (cholesterol) profile every 5 years, from the age of 45.
Torres Strait Islanders and Aboriginal peoples should be tested every 5 years from the age of 35, as they have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.
How often you get retested after that depends on your results, and your other risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
