Are Deeper Palm Lines Worrisome?

I have noticed lately that the palms of my hands have more lines and they run deeper than they used to. Is this a sign of any types of medical conditions? My family has a history of diabetes and heart disease. I am a 35 year old female but my father was diagnosed with coronary artery disease in his 40 s. Thanks.
