Primary vascular dysregulation, a special form of circulatory disorder, causes Flammer's syndrome.

According to Golubnitschaja, early diagnosis and treatment is important, because Flammer's syndrome promotes the development of glaucoma (glaucoma; an eye disease) and can further serious secondary diseases.

Doctors see a connection between Flammer Syndrome and 

cancers such as breast cancer, cardiovascular diseases, mouth and vaginal dryness, chronic inflammation, slow wound healing, strokes at a young age and mental illnesses such as anorexia.

Preventing secondary diseases: treating Flammer's syndrome

Golubnitschaja sees Flammer's syndrome as a major health risk, especially for slim people


"It is therefore time to support this research area in a variety of ways," she said in an interview: "Flammer syndrome has a huge advantage for early and preventive diagnosis, namely that the symptoms of Flammer syndrome appear very early in life, mostly at puberty. At this age one has the rare opportunity to work on reversible health problems cheaply - in contrast to advanced age, when the already clinically manifested diseases can often only be treated to a limited extent effectively. We must not miss this opportunity ".

The following therapies and lifestyle changes

should help to alleviate the symptoms and prevent secondary diseases of Flammer's syndrome:

  • good protection from the cold

  • Stress reduction (e.g. through meditation and other relaxation methods)

  • regular exercise

  • adequate sleep

  • Maintain normal weight

  • balanced nutrition
