Acute Inflammation (Over-acid stomach) in a Blue Iris

The area of brightness immediately adjacent to the pupil either indicates a true over-acid stomach or is the result of dietary factors (jalapeno peppers, for example) and/or hypothyroidism. The yellow density--xanthelasmus--medial to the iris is suggestive of hyperlipidemia. (The client was an obese Hispanic woman.)

A Heidelberg test can be ordered by a doctor to test for stomach acidity. Also recommended: a lipid panel and tests for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), T4 and T3; and Reverse T3 to rule out Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome.
