Specialties :: Lipid Disorders
Having high cholesterol has no symptoms but it can be a life threatening condition. High cholesterol is serious problem that can lead to heart disease, clots, heart attacks and strokes. Sometimes, in certain people who have a family history of high cholesterol, there may be signs such as xanthomata (deposits of yellowish material containing cholesterol), xanthelasma palpebrarum (yellowish patches under the skin around the eyelids), and or arcus senilis (gray or white discoloring of the eye’s cornea). These symptoms are usually found in those people who have high cholesterol in their family.
