I suggest you to get a detailed breakdown of your blood cholesterol. I don't know how reliable xanthoma is as an indicator of a problem with blood cholesterol. There are genetic and environmental factors at play, including your liver function (there's a big turnover of cholesterol in the liver, which is a major contributing factor), also triglyceride levels, which can be elevated by fructose intake.
