How Your Eyes Can Reveal Serious Health Problems

August 31, 2015 2 min read

The windows to the soul may also be the windows to your physical health. If you have certain eye problems or peculiarities, your body is trying to tell you something! Here is what yours might be trying to reveal about you: Dark Circles dark eye circles Dark circles have always been a tell tale sign that you haven't slept well the night before. Dabbing on concealer or applying tea bags may temporarily lessen their appearance, but dark circles are alluding to one of two health conditions. "Thyroid problems or anaemia." says nutritionist Cassandra Barns "See your doctor to get tested for both of these conditions." Yellow Whites Of Eyes "This can potentially be due to conditions such as hepatitis, liver dysfunction, bile duct obstruction or jaundice." says Cassandra. No matter the issue, you should check with your doctor immediately if you notice a yellowing of your eye whites. Bloodshot Eyes  "[Bloodshot eyes can be a result of] serious conditions like conjunctivitis, blepharitis, uveitis and glaucoma can all result in redness." warns Elouise Bauskis, a nutritionist at nutricentre.com. It can also be a result of staring at a computer screen for more than 8 hours a day, with minimal rest. But other serious conditions should be ruled out first. Dry Eyes  "This gritty sensation may be caused by age, for example in post-menopausal women, taking certain medications, environmental factors as well as deficiency in vitamin A." explains Cassandra. Increasing your vitamin A intake comes down to eating more meats, egg yolks and fish along with supplements. Puffy Eyes  Puffy, pillowy cushions under your eyes may be a result of excessive sodium intake. If you eat lots of highly processed foods, this could be the case. Balancing out your high sodium means eating more potassium rich foods like bananas and avocados. Also, drinking more water and avoiding alcohol and caffeine will help rehydrate your system.
