You’ve heard that eyes are the window to your soul, but they may reveal health problems too.
By Diana Kelly Levey
When an ophthalmologist or optometrist looks into your eyes, they can identify eye health issues, like glaucoma and cataracts, but they might also be able to tell if your diet isn’t healthy, if you have an immune disorder, as well as if your diabetes symptoms are being managed properly. Read on to learn about the full scope of health issues your eyes may be trying to let you in on so you can prevent or treat any potential conditions.
You May Have Thyroid Issues
Protruding or bulging eyes could be a sign of a serious health condition, like the immune disorder Graves’ disease when your thyroid gland produces too much of the thyroid hormone. It could also be a sign you have hyperthyroidism when your thyroid gland is overactive and producing too many thyroid issues. You might also experience hand tremors, an elevated heart rate, and elevated blood pressure.
