- The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine

by Feng Wei-bin and Fan Guan-jie

The incidence of diabetes and obesity has dramatically increased in all parts of the world, a fact largely attributed to dietary and lifestyle changes that come with economic development. Obesity is closely linked with diabetes and can lead to endocrine, cerebrovascular diseases. Various complications induced by diabetes and obesity are endangering public health and have become one of the most challenging problems facing the world today.

There are many successful approaches for managing these two diseases in traditional Chinese medicine(TCM). With the continuous development of the medicine and its integration with modern scientific technology, TCM and biomedical research on diabetes and obesity has reached new heights. TCM has the advantages of unique diagnostic and treatment methods, stable efficacy, and little or no side-effects, it ca also regulate the health and strengthen the constitution. Such advantages cannot be replaced by Western medical treatment.
