I recently developed little yellow patches under each eye which are xanthelasma (deposits of cholesterol) so I did a cholesterol test the other day, it was only a 'total cholesterol' self-test but it was high. My dad also had sky high cholesterol & tryglicerides when he died of a heart attack aged 60.
How should I change my diet accordingly in line with paleo to reverse this accumulation of cholesterol which if coming out under my eyes is probably filling my arteries aswell?
I eat low carb (upto 50g net carbs) and have switched my fats from lard/ghee to olive oil/avocado oil/coconut oil, i snack on coconut, avocado & raw veggies during the day, most nights I eat veggies saut??ed in 5 tbspn olive oil with seafood.
Appreciate any advice on this

Get yourself checked out for familial homocystinuria - if you have it,
B6, B12, folate are critical.
Next, see which APOe your DNA codes for. These will help guide your actions.
