Heart disease: 12 warning signs appearing on the skin (I)

Heart disease : Warning signs can appear on your skin and nails, which is why your dermatologist may be the first doctor to notice that you have heart disease.

If you know what to look for, you can also find warning signs of heart disease on your skin and nails.

The following pictures show you what to look for.

Swelling in your feet and lower legs

What it may be telling you:

Your heart isn’t working properly.

Whenever there is a barrier in the veins of the body, the pressure inside the veins increases and a lot of fluid builds up in the tissues.

In this case, the legs usually swell.

Medical name: Edema (medical term for swelling)

2Blue or purple color on your skin

What it may be telling you:

You have a blockage in a blood vessel.

If a region of your skin is blue (or violet), it indicates that there is not enough oxygen in the blood.

In fact, this happens when one or more blood vessels are blocked.

If no treatment occurs, oxygen deficiency can lead to death of the skin and surrounding tissue.

3- Red spots on your skin

 What it may be telling you:

Lack of adequate blood supply to various tissues including the heart.

The main symptom of this disease is inflammation and pain.

4- Yellowish-orange, waxy growths on your skin

 What it may be telling you:

If you see yellowish-orange growths on your skin, you may have deposits of cholesterol under your skin.

These painless deposits can appear in many areas, including the corners of your eyes, lines on your palms, or the backs of your lower legs.

Medical name: Xanthelasma (cholesterol deposits on the eyelids), Xanthoma (cholesterol deposit found elsewhere on the skin)

5- Clusters of waxy bumps that suddenly appear on your skin

 What it may be telling you:

You have skyrocketing cholesterol levels or diabetes.

These lesions usually contain cholesterol fatty acids due to the high levels of triglyceride (cholesterol) in the blood.

 What it may be telling you:
