High cholesterol: Three signs on your toes that plaque has built up in the artery walls

They are the sensation of burning in your toes, thick toenails, and toes that turn blue.

Healthline notes that other signs include thinning, paleness, or shininess on the skin of the legs and feet and tissue death caused by lack of blood supply, called gangrene.

You may also find that you have ulcers on the legs and feet that don’t heal or heal very slowly, leg pain that doesn’t go away when at rest, reduced hair growth on the legs, and a decrease in the temperature of your lower leg or foot, compared to the other leg.

“People with PAD have a higher risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or limb amputations,” warns the health site.
