Medically termed “Xanthelasma Palpebra” is the condition in which little bumps form on your eyelids.

It is also known as “cholesterol bumps” because it may indicate you have high levels of cholesterol in your body. If you don’t get it check, you might end up with fatty liver disease.

Do you suffer from dry eyes?

Although many factors can cause this issue; paired with blurry vision/dizziness, fatigue, and constant tiredness, floaters in the eye, poor vision at night, muscle cramps or problems with your menstruation cycle – it suggests a blood deficiency in the liver.

Traditional Chinese Medicine used this method of detection, and now even Modern Western Medicine uses these indicators.

Are your eyes bloodshot?

This can be caused by smoking, drinking and staying up late regularly and if you wake up constantly with bloodshot eyes, then you should check with a physician because it could indicate liver inflammation.

Taking good care of your health by exercising regularly, getting enough rest and keeping a healthy diet is the key to a fulfilling general health.
