Blood Cholesterol: Signs, Symptoms, and Complications

hypercholesterolemia 

High “bad” LDL cholesterol usually does not cause symptoms, so most people do not know they have it until they are tested during a routine doctor’s visit. Very high levels may cause symptoms such as fatty bumps on your skin, called xanthomas, or grayish-white rings around the corneas in your eye, called corneal arcus. These mostly develop in people who have familial hypercholesterolemia. Undiagnosed or untreated high blood cholesterol can lead to serious problems, such as heart attack and stroke.
