    Well, generally speaking, hypothyroidism can cause dark circles under your eyes. As we know that hypothyroidism is a thyroid hormone deficiency disease. And Hypothyroidism may occur at any age and is common in older adults. And many people may develop dark circles around your eyes, because hypothyroidism can cause an infiltration of complex sugar molecules in your face, which leads to swelling and discoloration in your face and around your eyes. Of course, there are also many other factors which can lead to dark circles, such as the allergy and alcohol, lack of sleep. So you also need pay more attention to the life habits. Eating more fruits and vegetables can be effective.

    Usually, hypothyroidism is caused by the thyroiditis. And people with hypothyroidism may also suffer Cold or other respiratory infection, paleness or dry skin, weight gain, puffy face and thinning of eyebrows etc. But i never heard that hypothyroidism can cause the dark skin under the eyes. And dark circle can also be result of many factors such as heredity, stress, tiredness, lacking of sleep and too much coffee intake etc. So, you'd better think it over so as to make the right way to treat your dark circles under eyes.
