Everyone needs to monitor their cholesterol levels regularly to lower the risk of heart diseases and blockages in the blood vessels, said Medicover Hospitals.
The site continued: “High cholesterol levels typically don’t cause any symptoms, and, in most cases, they only cause emergency events.
“But there are a certain set of physical symptoms of high cholesterol, which indicate high cholesterol levels in the body and warns us to follow the guidelines to control the cholesterol.
“The warning signs of high cholesterol symptoms include pain in hands and feet which is caused by an accumulation of cholesterol which clogs the blood vessels of the hands.
“This build-up of cholesterol can occur continuously and make the hands painful.”
