Tiny blood clots under your fingernails may be a warning that bad cholesterol levels in your body are high and you should see a doctor, otherwise it may end up in a heart attack.

LDL cholesterol that comes from consuming saturated fats is known as the silent killer, as reaching high levels in the body often adheres to the walls of the arteries and blocking proper blood circulation.

The best way to detect high cholesterol levels is through a blood test that everyone should do periodically, but in some cases this danger can be accompanied by this almost unnoticed sign.

According to ExpressSplinter haemorrhages under the nails should not be ignored as they are a tell-tale sign that the person is at risk of suffering from heart disease.

“When it’s a sign of heart disease, people tend to have symptoms, such as high fever and a weak or irregular heartbeat”

according to the Association of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).

LDL cholesterol is found in foods such as sausages, fried foods or fatty cuts of meat, however there is also the good cholesterol better known as NHS cholesterol that is necessary for the body and that helps reduce bad cholesterol in the arteries.

High cholesterol can be reversed by removing saturated fats from the daily diet and consuming unsaturated fats to reinforce the NHS cholesterol, exercising.

“Adults should aim to get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week. If they can do more, that’s better,” advises the Cholesterol Charity Heart UK.
