The frequency 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 socioeconomic development. Obesity is closely linked with diabetes and can lead to endocrine and cerebrovascular diseases. Various other complications induced by diabetes and obesity are endangering public health and have become one of the most challenging medical issues facing the world today, and cannot be treated with western medicine alone.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has the advantages of unique diagnostic and treatment methods, stable efficacy, and little or no side-effects. This, coupled with the continuous development of medicine and its integration with scientific advances and biomedical research, is at the core of The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine: Diabetes & Obesity.
