A warning sign that your cholesterol is dangerously clogging your arteries

Al-Marsad newspaper: Cholesterol silently causes chaos in the arteries, leading to health problems such as heart disease and strokes, yet one of the warning signs of cholesterol accumulation can appear in the buttocks.

High levels of “bad” cholesterol – the kind that raises your risk of health problems – promote plaque buildup in the arteries, according to the British newspaper Express.

Plaque is a waxy substance made up of cholesterol and other things. When you have a lot of plaque, it can narrow your arteries and limit blood flow. When your blood vessels constrict as a result, blood flow to your legs is also restricted, causing the “first noticeable” sign. .

According to the medical website Cleveland, the lack of blood flow to your legs can sometimes lead to a “common” condition known as peripheral artery disease (PAD).

The “first” symptom of PAD may be leg pain, however, this pain not only subsides in this area because it can travel to the buttocks. You may notice pain in the calf, but you may also feel it in the buttocks or thighs.

Peripheral arterial disease can also cause other telltale signs, including pain in your feet and toes, especially at night when you’re lying down, redness or discoloration of your skin, and sores on the toes that don’t heal.
