Symptoms of dangerously high cholesterol in the blood … Two signs to note when you “look at your face”?


Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in the blood. Maintaining a delicate balance of cholesterol in the body supports a number of important processes, such as building healthy cells. However, tip the scales and you can cause a tsunami of trouble, the most dangerous of which is heart disease.

Unfortunately, your body usually doesn’t warn you about high cholesterol, so the only way to know if you have these levels is to have a blood test.

Sometimes telltale signs of high cholesterol can show up on your face.

According to Dr. Gary Bartlett, there are two specific signs that you may have high cholesterol “just by looking at your face.”

One “obvious” sign, said Dr. Bartlett, is xanthelasma – a buildup of fatty deposits on your eyelids.

These are “clear, waxy yellow deposits of cholesterol,” he explained.

Another telltale sign is the corneal arch.

According to Dr. Bartlett, these are “cholesterol deposits that appear as a distribution ‘arc’ in the iris (the colored part of your eye).”

How to answer: “If you have high cholesterol, your doctor or nurse will explain how to lower it,” says the NHS.

Depending on the health authority, this can include things like changing your diet or taking medication.

Different foods lower cholesterol in different ways.

The Mayo Clinic explains, “Some offer soluble fiber, which binds cholesterol and its precursors in the digestive system and removes them from the body before they enter the circulation.

“Some give you polyunsaturated fats which directly lower LDL. Some contain plant sterols and stanols which prevent the body from absorbing cholesterol.”

The rule of thumb is to replace saturated fat with unsaturated fat whenever possible, advises the Heart UK charity.

Many foods contain saturated fat, especially foods of animal origin such as meat, butter, and dairy products, and foods made from them such as cakes and cookies.

It is also found in some plant foods, including coconut oil and palm oil.

Good sources of unsaturated fats include vegetable fats, oils, oily fish, nuts, and seeds.

Saturated fat shouldn’t make up more than a third of your daily energy intake, notes the Heart UK website.

20 grams for women and 30 grams for men.

Regular exercise is also an integral part of lowering high cholesterol levels.

The NHS advises: “Try to get at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of exercise per week.”

Here are some great things to try to get started:
