Pain in 3 areas of the body that warns of high cholesterol

Al-Marsad newspaper: Pain in 3 areas of the body indicates a buildup of cholesterol that causes narrowing of the arteries.

High cholesterol is associated with serious complications, such as peripheral artery disease (PAD), which is indicated by pain in 3 areas of the body.

The Mayo Clinic noted: “Peripheral arterial disease is caused by atherosclerosis, when fatty deposits such as cholesterol build up on the walls of the arteries and reduce blood flow.”

According to the American Heart Association “AHA”, cramping pain in the hips, thighs, or calf muscles when walking, climbing stairs or exercising can indicate peripheral arterial disease, according to “Express”.

Other symptoms of PAD include:

1- Wounds in the foot or toe that do not heal or heal very slowly.

2- gangrene, or dead tissue.

3- A significant decrease in the temperature of the lower leg or foot compared to the other leg or the rest of the body.

4- Poor growth of nails on the toes or hair growth on the legs.

5- Erectile dysfunction, especially in men with diabetes.
