Does it matter what your Cholesterol is when you are in your 20's?

BP and cholesterol are major contributors to cardiovascular disease. Most people only start becoming aware of how high their BP and cholesterol is in middle age. Often by then there has already been significant damage to the cardiovascular system.

Would it be sensible for health conscious young people to ask their GP for a cholesterol blood test roughly once a year? Therefore, enabling them to alter their diet and control their weight at a younger age and potentially reduce later heart disease.
