GONZALEZ JIMENEZ, Emilio. Lipid profile characteristics in children. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2011, vol.4, n.3, pp.223-227. ISSN 1699-695X.

It is currently accepted that atherosclerosis starts at increasingly earlier ages. A more profound study of the lipid profile in children is a priority for public health mainly because of its relationship with a higher incidence of cardiovascular disease in adulthood. Plasma levels of total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol are very high in today's children. This seems to be explained by an unhealthy diet that is high in calories and rich in saturated fats. Although recent studies indicate that other factors, such as genetics and certain hormonal disorders, are also involved. The aim of this study was to provide a realistic view of the lipid profile characteristics of children today.

Palabras clave : Lipid Values; Children; Diet; Genes.
