Annoying pain may be a sign of high cholesterol

High cholesterol is often referred to as a "silent killer" because there are few warning signs about it. Health sources suggest that nagging pain may be a sign of high cholesterol, such as pain in the feet, hands, or jaw.

And according to a report by the British newspaper "Express", high cholesterol can be fatal if left untreated, as it may lead to a number of serious conditions such as heart disease or angina pectoris.

The newspaper quoted the "Cleveland Clinic" website, saying that the accumulation of cholesterol in the arteries may lead to peripheral arterial disease or blockage of the arteries, and when cholesterol accumulates in the body can block the blood vessels in the hands, and over time, this accumulation causes painful symptoms.

According to the NHS, high cholesterol is caused by eating fatty foods, not exercising enough, being overweight, smoking and drinking alcohol.

You can lower high cholesterol by eating healthy food and getting more exercise, and some people also need to take medication if their doctor recommends it.
