High cholesterol: 5 symptoms seen on hands, legs

Why bubbles in your urine could spell trouble

High cholesterol itself doesn’t usually cause noticeable symptoms on the hands and legs. However, high cholesterol can contribute to a condition called peripheral artery disease (PAD) which can cause symptoms in the legs.

Cramping pain in the legs: This pain typically occurs in the muscles of the calves, thighs, or buttocks. It often comes on with activity, such as walking, and improves with rest.

Numbness or weakness in the legs: This can be a sign that there’s not enough blood flow to the nerves and muscles in your legs.

Skin changes on the legs: The skin on your legs may become pale, shiny, or cool to the touch. In severe cases, sores or ulcers may develop on the toes or feet.

Poor hair growth on the legs: Hair loss on the legs and feet can be a sign of reduced blood flow.

Cold feet: If your feet feel cold to the touch, even in warm weather, it could be a sign of PAD.

It’s important to note that these symptoms can also be caused by other conditions.
