Egyptian news vision: - High blood cholesterol has no obvious symptoms, but it can be diagnosed by the appearance of yellow growths on the skin, which may be a warning sign.

These growths are known as "xanthelasma", and are caused by high levels of cholesterol in the blood, that is, a yellow-colored grouping of cholesterol under the skin.

Xanthelasma can vary in size, from a small pinhead to the size of a grape. It is usually similar to a bump under the skin, and may appear yellow or orange.

These yellow lumps may be isolated individual growths, or they may develop in clusters, and they may appear anywhere on the body.

If any yellow growths appear on the body, you should consult a doctor immediately. Because a high level of cholesterol in the blood can increase the risk of developing conditions with symptoms, including angina (chest pain caused by heart disease), high blood pressure, stroke, and other circulatory diseases.

The cause of high cholesterol may be eating too much fatty foods or not getting enough exercise.

Obesity, smoking and drinking a lot of alcohol contribute to raising cholesterol levels.

Medicines can help keep cholesterol levels under control. But it is also important to stick to a healthy diet and get regular exercise.

Everyone should aim to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day, in addition to exercising for 150 minutes each week.
