Doctors have named a noticeable sign of dangerous cholesterol levels
Fatty build-ups on the toes can indicate an increased level of cholesterol in the blood. This is reported by the British newspaper Daily Express with reference to the Vascular Health Clinics.
It is noted that the accumulation of harmful substances in the blood is asymptomatic. In this case, signs of the disease in some cases may appear.
“Fat formations can grow on the toes, but they also develop on the Achilles tendon,” said the experts.
In this case, fat bumps can reach seven centimeters. High cholesterol levels, in turn, increase the risk of heart disease. This is due to a blockage in the artery. As a result, this can provoke a stroke or heart attack.
Earlier, Spanish scientists have discovered a number of beneficial properties for the human body that beer has. So, this drink is able to increase the level of the so-called good cholesterol and regulate the processing of bad cholesterol in the body.
