What are Xanthelasma Polyps?
Xanthelasma polyps on the eyelid or beneath the eye are nothing more than a fatty deposit just below the surface of the skin. This deposit is likely to be yellowish and is composed largely of cholesterol.
A xanthelasma is indicative of high levels of lipids (fats) in the bloodstream. As such, a xanthelasma polyp can be strongly indicative of concerns regarding heart disease and your cardiovascular health, since these lipids are likely to form along the inside of your vascular walls as well, leading to obstructions and the possibility of a stroke. As such, a xanthelasma should be taken seriously, though the polyp itself is benign and no worse than possibly unattractive.
Natural Cures for Xanthelasma Polyps
A reduced-fat diet can lower your lipid levels in the bloodstream, reducing the likelihood of further xanthelasmas. Apple cider vinegar tonics can help to metabolize excess fat in the body.
