    Yes, the thyroid problems may cause the puffy eyes because of the coming bacterium. Since you have the thyroid problems, the immune system in the body will be decreased. The eyes may easily get the bacterium which may cause the eyes to be dry. The redness of the eyes are just caused from the dryness. And this dryness may cause the puffy eyes. You should eat more food with vitamin C and A to moisture the eyes. You should even use the warm cloth to cover on the eyes to release the puffy eyes. There are many reasons to cause the thyroid problems. The first reason is the iodine intake. Either too high or too low amount of iodine intake will cause the thyroid problems. The second one is the uneven diet. Most patients tend to be pay attention to the intake of food with high quantity of heat. They have neglected the fruits and vegetables intake. The third main cause is the unbalance in the psychology. The pressure and bad mood can not only affect appetite sleep but also affect the immune function and body health which will easily cause the thyroid problems. The last cause is the trauma infection, trauma car accident hurt and a cold which are likely to cause body infection disease and cause thyroid problems.
