Symptoms of high cholesterol, which can be a cause of many ailments, sometimes first appear on the skin near the eyes
A blood test and a visit to the doctor are necessary for the diagnosis of high cholesterol, but, before that, there are signals that you may notice yourself that will warn you that you have reason to worry.
You will notice some of them on your feet, but two symptoms will appear in your eyes or near them!
A phenomenon, called xanthelasma, is similar to small yellow bumps near the eye or nose.
These lumps can appear on the skin of the eyelid or in the area between the nose and eyes, but they are one of the most common symptoms of high cholesterol.
Another unusual symptom is called arcus senilis, which is when a “ring” of a different color, usually blue, gray, or white, forms around the iris of your eye.
Both of these unusual symptoms cause cholesterol deposits in certain tissues, so if you notice them, see your doctor.
