Arcus sclerosis / Sodium ring / Cholesterol ring

This sign is a result of a chemical imbalance in the body, pertaining to non-organic sodium excess, calcium out of solution, as well as high cholesterol and high triglycerides in the blood. Cholesterol Ring is also a non-specific liver marking. It may transpire when hepatopathies (liver disease), diabetes mellitus or hypo-activity of the thyroid are present. When there is a problem with the inorganic sodium and excessive fats in the body, there may be a hardening of the arteries, calcium spurs and deposits, joint problems and so on.

The cholesterol ring is a white, opaque ring that appears around the outer edge of the iris either partially or wholly.
