Clinical observation on acupuncture treatment in 35 cases of diabetic gastroparesis

In order to observe the therapeutic effects of acupuncture on diabetic gastroparesis, 80 cases were divided randomly into 3 groups. In addition to the routine treatment for diabetes, 35 cases in the treatment group were additionally treated with acupuncture, and 25 cases in the control group 1 with domperidone, while 20 cases in the control group 2 with nothing. The three groups were all observed for 25 days. The results turned out to be that the total effective rate in the treatment group reached 94.2%, that in the control group 1, 72%, and in the control group 2, 40%, the treatment group showing a better therapeutic effect than the other two control groups (P < 0.05, P < 0.01). It can be concluded that in addition to the routine treatment for controlling blood sugar, acupuncture can give quite good therapeutic effects on diabetic gastroparesis.
