Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose bags under eyes, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "bags under eyes" as a symptom.  Here are four possibilities:
  • Lack Of Sleep
  • Food Allergies
  • Liver Congestion
  • Hypothyroidism

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
elevated basophil count
chronic productive cough
frequent sleep paralysis
severe current middle ear infection
poor concentration during cycle
occasional racing thoughts
occasional unexplained nausea
depression with anxiety
constant fatigue
having excess body fat
fatty food intolerance
fair recovery from exertion
... and more than 130 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of bags under eyes:
Cause Probability Status
Hypothyroidism 96% Confirm
Food Allergies 19% Unlikely
Lack Of Sleep 3% Ruled out
Liver Congestion 2% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Eyes/Ocular Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about bags under the eyes:
Do you have bags under your eyes?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate bags under eyes, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:

People suffering from a thyroid problem (usually underactive, sometimes overactive) may have very baggy eyes.
