    It may be the symptom of the anemia. As we know, the not good blood circulation will be the most symptom of the anemia which may cause the dark circles under the eyes. That is why when you have the serious dark circles under the eyes, you should think about whether you have the anemia.

If the dark circles under the eyes not disappear, you may go to the hospital to check whether you have got the anemia. If you do, you should eat more food with Fe which will help you increase the blood and make the blood circulation do well.
