As long a s I remember I had some dark circles under my eyes and "bags",
but since I got worse and got that other symptoms like tingling, stomach pain etc
it looks to me those circles got worse under my eyes, more blue, sometime swelling especially in the morning.
Anybody had that effect because of celiac disease?
thanks

That was a symptom I probably had all of my life. It went away shortly after I went gluten free. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it or not.

My oldest granddaughter had dark circles under her eyes all her life until the age of seven (she is almost eight now), at which point my daughter put her on the gluten-free diet. Her dark circles have been gone ever since (they took less than a week to disappear).

I think it depends on the person-mine are better but still visable, I have only been gluten-free for 3 months.

I was told at the doctor's office that dark circles under the eyes are a sign of allergies. My daughter has them, I have them, and my husband. I have gluten and casein intolerance. My hubby is lactose inolerance, pecan and walnut allergy, and maybe more. My daughter I believe is also gluten intolerant. I am awaiting enterolab results on her because she needs proof.

I always thought it was a sign of iron deficiency. Mine get worse around "that time of the month", especially if I'm not taking my vitamins.

I've just always heard they were hereditary. Some people have them and some don't.

Can't wait to finish with all of my testing and see if mine go away. (Or at least get better.) That would be an awesome side bonus.
