12 posts in this topic

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.

Mine went away when I went gluten free. My daughter and I get them back when we have had a an accidental glutening.

I've also heard they're a sign of allergies. Mine have gotten less noticeable since going gluten-free, but they haven't completely gone away.

I was always told that something with kidneys when you have eyes like that, I hope not.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
