Can Chinese Medicines Treat Diabetes
Diabetes is a chronic, systemic and metabolic disease formed under the combined action of congenital factors (genetic) and acquired factors (diet, exercise, age and obesity,etc). It is a metabolic disorder syndrome characterized by increased blood sugar, positive urine sugar and metabolic disorder. There is no complete cure for diabetes. But Chinese Medicines have advantages in controlling the development of diabetes, enhancing patient’s physique, delaying the aging of diabetic patients and prevent various chronic complications.
What are advantages of Chinese Medicines in diabetes treatment?
The treatment of diabetes is multifaceted and hypoglycemic therapy is just one of the aspects. The reaching target of glucose can not solve all the problems, especially for subjective symptoms like dry mouth, thirst, weakness and various chronic complications. Improving subjective symptoms is one of the advantages of TCM treatment. TCM treatment attaches importance to individualization, emphasizes treatment based on syndrome differentiation, formulates and adjusts treatment plans according to the changes of clinical symptoms, and judges the efficacy according to the changes of symptoms. For the symptoms of diabetes such as dry mouth, weakness, dizziness and others, treatment based on syndrome differentiation can relieve or eliminate these symptoms. Besides, prevention for various chronic complications is another advantage of Chinese medicines for diabetes treatment. Most researches have found that western medicines and Chinese medicines together can prevent chronic complications effectively and even have a certain reversal effect for early complications of diabetes such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy, diabetic retinopathy, Diabetic Nephropathy and diabetic heart disease, etc.
Therefore, in the course of diabetes treatment, we should combine Chinese medicines with western medicines and make full use of the advantages of Chinese medicines in improving subjective symptoms, preventing complications and improving the life quality of patients with diabetes.
Besides, Acupuncture, Cupping Therapy and other Chinese medicine treatments can also be used to help diabetes patients. About more information, you can leave a message below or consult our online doctor directly.
