Resumen

BARJA Y, SALESA; CORDERO B, MARÍA LUISA; BAEZA L, CECILIA  y  HODGSON B, MARÍA ISABEL. Dyslipidemia Management in children and adolescents: Recommendations of the Nutrition branch of the Chilean society of Pediatrics. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2014, vol.85, n.3, pp.367-377. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062014000300014.

The prevalence of dyslipidemia has dramatically increased in children and adolescents, and many of these cases are associated with increased obesity. As this condition represents cardiovascular risk in the future, the bases of its treatment should be widely known. In the vast majority of patients, there will be lifestyle changes, specific diet and increased physical activity, usually all of these resulting in a favorable response. Only a minority will require drug treatment, which must be prescribed by a specialist in the context of a comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment, including the patient and his family. The prevention of cardiovascular risk factors should be performed by all members of the health team. This article presents the recommendations of the Nutrition specialists of the Chilean Society of Pediatrics for screening, diagnosis and treatment of dyslipidemia in childhood.

Palabras clave : Dyslipidemia; hypercholesterolemia; cardiovascular risk; pediatrics.
