Clinical efficacy of invigorating qi, nourishing yin, and promoting blood circulation in treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus

Objective: This study aims to investigate the clinical efficacy of invigorating qi, nourishing yin, and promoting blood circulation in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Methods: Sixty-six patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus admitted to our hospital from February 2015 to January 2017 were recruited in this study. Odd-even method was used to divide the patients into two groups. Patients in the control group (n=33) were given with conventional treatment for type 2 diabetes mellitus, and those in the observation group (n=33) were administered with a conventional scheme involving invigorating qi, nourishing yin, and promoting blood circulation. The TCM syndrome efficacy and the levels of TC, FBG, and FINS were compared between the two groups.

Results: Compared with the control group (72.73%), the observation group showed significantly improved TCM syndrome (96.97%) (P<0.05) and significantly increased levels of TC, FBG, and FINS (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Treating patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus by invigorating qi, nourishing yin, and promoting blood circulation can ensure TCM syndrome efficacy and increase the levels of TC, FBG, and FINS levels, thereby improving the treatment outcomes.
