High cholesterol levels are troublesome as it means there is too much ‘bad’ cholesterol floating in the blood, which can result in serious complications. The condition does not have any obvious symptoms in the early stages meaning many are unaware until it is too late. If, however, you experience any of these two symptoms found in the eyes, it could be an indicator your cholesterol may be dangerously high.
It is rare, but it is an indicator of high levels of cholesterol or other fats in the blood – but experts said it is also possible to get it even if cholesterol levels are normal.
High cholesterol causes the narrowing of the arteries – atherosclerosis – heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial disease.
Cholesterol is a fatty substance known as a lipid and is vital for the normal functioning of the body. It’s mainly made by the liver but can also be found in some foods.
High levels of cholesterol can create a build-up of plaque in the arteries which can block the flow of blood and increase your risk of heart attacks, strokes and aneurysms.
