The Study for the Relationships among Iris Sign, Blood Lipid Abnormality, and Arteriosclerosis
Background and Purpose: The heart disease and cerebrovascular disease were the second and the third death reasons among Taiwan people in 2011 and 2012, so the related diseases had been becoming a problem during years. The purpose of the study was to assure whether the iridology has a significant relationship with the onset of cardiovascular disease (CVD)to learn if the iridology can help.
Methods: Totally 100 samples were collected from a clinic in middle south Taiwan, and all had a cholesterol ring in iris, which is the sign of CVD based on the iridology. Fifty nice were male, and forty one were female.. The cholesterol ring index, ASI, ABI, TG, CHOL, LDL, HDL, LDL/HDL, CHOL/HDL, and Framingham Risk Score were collected to learn if they were correlated each other.
Results: It was found that the Framingham Risk Score should not be the criteria for the CVD, since it did not correlated with ASI, ABI, and other lipid figures. The color and total score of cholesterol ring had a significant positive correlation with CVD index. However, it correlated with CHOL and LDL among male samples and correlated with ASI among female samples.
Suggests: Based on the finding of this study, the cholesterol ring of iris can be used as a sign for CVD for the people of both gender. Further study was also encouraged especially on the accuracy rate.
