Yellow circle around the eyelids or the scientific term xanthelasmata turned out to be a marker of a person's risk of heart problems. According to a study from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, recently.

The scientists used a survey of 12.745 people who are free of heart disease, with an age range between 20 and 93 years. In early studies have detected as many as 563 people and 3,159 other xanthelasmata detected arcus corneae.

During some periods of the study, as many as 1,872 people had heart attacks, 3,699 people had detected problems in heart, and 1,498 people had a stroke. While 1,815 people suffering from cerebrovascular disease and 8,507 others died.

Based on these results, there are those who have xanthelasmata in all age groups, both men and women. They are also potentially high risk for heart attack, heart disease, or death within a period of ten years. Instead, the results suggest that people with arcus corneae can not be used as a significant marker for heart problems.

The research, led by Professor Anne Tybaerg - Hansen at the University of Copenhagen concludes that white or gray rings around the cornea ash ( arcus corneae ) are not associated with an increased risk of heart problems. Although it Xanthelasmata and arcus corneae are both cholesterol deposits.
