Whether it is matters of the heart, the mind or the nerves, our eyes have the ability to show us serious health concerns even before we start to experience any symptoms at all. Since early detection is key, make an appointment with your eye doctor and get checked.
Here are a few health issues your eyes will reveal…
Glaucoma, cataracts and retinopathy, a disorder of the retina, are all eye health issues brought on by diabetes. But even before that, diabetes itself can be diagnosed through an eye exam.
The procedure is done by an ophthalmologist dilating the eye with drops. This allows the doctor to get a full picture of what is going on in your eye. They are looking for abnormal blood vessels, swelling and fat deposits, retinal detachment and abnormalities in your optic nerve.
Why exactly does diabetes reveal itself in the eyes? Well, according to a study conducted by the United Healthcare, high blood sugar causes weakened blood vessels and leakage of protein within the macula.
The macula is located in the center of the retina responsible for central vision. This can also cause a lack of oxygen and nutrients from getting to the back of the eye, reducing the quality of vision.
If caught early enough, your doctor can put you on a program to start controlling your blood sugar levels and changing your diet.
This will reduce the chances of losing your vision and start treatment for diabetes much sooner.
“Deer in headlights” and “bug eye” are expressions referring to a blank and dazed stare. But this look of the eyes can be a sign of a much more serious issue relating to your thyroid.
Grave’s disease, or overactive thyroid, is classified as an immune system disorder which causes the thyroid to produce too many hormones. It can affect just about anyone, but mainly women over 40.
Grave’s disease comes with many symptoms such as anxiety, nervousness, weight loss, an enlarged thyroid, frequent bowel movements and bulging of the eyes. The eyes in particular reveal much of the disease. A person with Grave’s disease may feel pressure or pain within the eyes, light sensitivity, loss of vision, redden and inflamed eyes, and a gritty sensation in the eyes. Because many of these symptoms can be cross-linked with other illnesses, it is best you consult a doctor right away to determine the cause.
When we hear the word inflammation we automatically assume the worst of pain and swelling. This isn’t always true. Our bodies require acute inflammation in order to heal ourselves after an injury or from infection. Inflammation caused by an autoimmune disease tells a different tale. In diseases such as psoriasis, Crohn’s and rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system doesn’t work properly and causes unnecessary inflammation. Some of these inflammatory diseases can reveal themselves in the eyes.
Uveitis is the inflammation of the uvea – the middle layer of the eye responsible for providing blood to the retina. Some symptoms of uveitis are loss of vision, blurred vision, floating spots in your field of vision, light sensitivity and eye pain. Uveitis is linked to many other illnesses, such as autoimmune diseases, infections such as syphilis and tuberculosis, injury to the eyes and certain cancers like lymphoma.
Catching uveitis at its earliest can prevent permanent vision loss and help with early treatment for other associated diseases.
Your nervous system is essential. Damage to the nervous system affects your ability to move, see and even feel. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nerve-damaging illness that attacks the protective layer around the spinal cord and brain, interrupting important signals sent from the brain. This causes a variety of debilitating symptoms, including depression, bladder dysfunction, pain, spasms and weakness.
The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada suggests that MS can be diagnosed through the eyes in about 16 percent of patients. This is referred to as optic neuritis, which can cause foggy vision, eye pain and loss of vision. If you experience any of these symptoms, your doctor likely will send you to a neurologist and an eye specialist to get a full view of what’s going on behind the eyes and in the brain. By looking at the optic nerve, doctors can spot any damage and certain activity in the brain which can lead to a diagnosis of MS.
When caught early enough, steps can be taken to manage the symptoms of MS and ensure a slower progression of the illness.
Take care of your eyes
Although your eyes’ primary function is vision, they can be a gateway to many different illnesses and diseases. A good diet full of essential vitamins, such as vitamin A from sweet potato, carrots and spinach for example, can go a long way to keeping your vision and your eyes healthy.
Even though you may see your reflection on a daily basis, really take the time to look at your eyes, from the size of your pupils to any unusual droopiness or swelling. These can be signs of a more serious issue. If you’re noticing any difference in your vision, don’t put off telling your doctor.

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
