CAN YOUR EAR BE A TELLTALE SIGN OF HEART DISEASE?

————————————–

Short answer: An equivocal, Yes! If you have an ear crease at a 45 degree angle,
you may have heart disease.

Degeneration of the elastic tissue around the small blood vessels that carry blood to the earlobes produces the earlobe crease. This is the same type of change that happens with blood vessels associated with CAD. In other words, visible changes that show up in tiny blood vessels of the ear could indicate similar changes, that can’t be seen, in those blood vessels around the heart.
