5:46 pm
cholesterol at the age of 9? >> we've been cheekingee cholesterol in n children for a fwhile, especially high-risklly young people who have familymily histories. that are consistent with high cholesterol levels, and children who are overweight. so we've been doing it for a while. i think the new recommendation is, has been over time, if you look at some of the googleg articles around the journals, journal of the american medical association, this has been aat debate for ioa while. >> let me ask you, you brought up a good point. you have already been testing children who seem to be in that at-risk category. that certain makes sense, but does it make sense to test every child? >> the problem is that we don't always have a good family history about a parent with high cholesterol, and so you know, when there's no information, we need to do the screening.en and i think we've been able to
5:47 pm
see that sometimes, we, we're not able to eye fight the risk, and the young person still hassle violated cholesterol.d we are focused on prevention, and taking blood test once for a screening. i think really balances the risl with the lybenefit potentially f intervening for this child. >> how do you respond to critics who say the tests are not necessarily about the health ofu the child, but the profit of the drug makers? >> right. the percent ankle of childrenf who end up on statins is low, is think like 1%. so we're not talking about large margins. what we're doing now is trying to understand more about the effectiveness of the drugs in very, very high-risk children, and safety profile.s >> bottom afline, what advice do you have for parents? >> i think parents should talkld to the pediatricians about the screening. they should be aware of the
5:48 pm
screening as an option. >> sounds good, dr. jenkins, thanks for coming in. >> thank you.ank whether gary, so what are wr looking at now in terms of the warnings? >> you know, we have a warning technically until 6:00 p.m. for montgomery county.me it's probably going to getto canceled early. there's a picture, looking backo okto downtown, the cathedral, kd much a hazy mix of clouds and sun. the clouds have done a couple things, kept the temperatures down just a little bit. as i was coming upstairs, official high came in couple of minutes ago at 93 degrees. we would have been warmer thaner that with full sunshine. so the clouds helped to keep the temperature down, and it doesit appear the clouds have really kept some of the thunderstorms down.ms a lot like last night, remember how we had thunderstorms to the north, thunderstorms to theth south, but nothing here.he that's the case this afternoon. we have been chasing a couple though, and technically, thisth
5:49 pm
storm right here is severe through montgomery county, northern sectioning ofg montgomery county until 6:00. ci this is no longer a severeno storm. it will probably get canceled early. it has pulsed a little, it came through frederick, they justth ecanceled it, came through frederick as severe, and was pretty strong, weakened and pulsed back up into northern sections of montgomery county, but they have canceled it, because it has weakened substantially. we are unstable, but with the clouds today, they have keptke the, i think the sunshine would have been a fairly big trigger. we have a frontal system to the north, but without the sun, we couldn't get the thunderstorms going. you see rappahannock county here, and in -- culpeper, these storms have not been severe. and i pulled this back into the district. the district is all clear much rain, and this greatly diminished thunderstorm comingsr
5:50 pm
into central and northern sex oe monday govern county -- sections of montgomery county.ou this has bypassed most much rockville, and stayed on thisnd side of 270, if it pulses back up, silver springs is perhaps in the line for that, and work to the southeast at 25 miles an hour, so that is all we're seeing in terms of storms.of we are all under the severe risk of strong to severe thunderstorms. all because of this frontal system to the north much us.s. on the other side of the front, it's cooler, it's less humid, it's going to be so nice for onr day. da tomorrow looks real, real good, thunderstorm watch in effect for everybody until 8:00 p.m., i suspect they are going to starta to whittle this down from northi to south over the next hour or so, so it would surprise me greatly if they keep all the of that watch up until 8:00. i don't think that's going to
