Do you have dark under eye circles?

Is it very common in diabetics?

I don't have dark circles myself, and to my knowledge, there is no direct association with diabetes. Mayo Clinic cites some common causes here.

If you have diabetes, you could tell us more about it and how you manage it.

Thank you for joining us.

Sometimes. In my case, I think they're genetic. My grandfather always had very dark circles under his eyes (he wasn't diabetic, though) and I seem to deal with them more as I age. They're worse when I'm not sleeping well, I think, but maybe that's just a myth. When the dark circles come on, I just use a little concealer and powder, but I guess men don't have that option.

i know for a fact that they can be genetic. My late husband had them (he was a doctor), and his son and 1 daughter have them.

Thanks all.

That's interesting that they seem to be able to be genetic.

I don't remember having bad eye circles as a kid, but I guess it's possible... and I'm sure my skin is thinner (that makes one part of me... ha!) than back then.

I have them and have had them for a long time, got them from my dad who coincidentally is the one in my family who had diabetes as well.

I have dark circles too. Even with 8 hours of sleep I still get them. I think as we age it may get worse because the skin has less resiliency. I notice it much more is since I lost weight.
