At what age should I be concerned and get tested with cholesterol ?

At what age should I be concerned and get tested with cholesterol? I would imagine the earlier you catch a cholesterol problem, you can fix it earlier. So what age should I get tested ?

It sort of depends on whether you have a history of cholesterol in your family or not, but probably somewhere around 25. Also if you notice little white spots near your eyes those are probably cholesterol deposits which is definitely a sign you should get your cholesterol checked. I hope that helps a little.
