ABSTRACT

The complication of diabetes is a chronic disease of brain, heart, kidney, nerve and other tissues caused by the gradual development of diabetes. And it is the main cause of death or disability of most diabetes patients, which seriously affects the physical and mental health and quality of life of patients. Research shows that diabetes is the third leading cause of death, after cancer and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. In recent years, clinical and experimental research has been carried out on diabetes and other diseases. Recent years, clinical and experimental research on diabetes and its complications has always been a hot spot. Compared with modern medicine, traditional Chinese medicine has the advantages of multiple benefits. Compared with modern medicine, traditional Chinese medicine has the advantages of multiple ways, levels and targets. The prescriptions for Yiqi Huoxue flow further reflect the principle of syndrome differentiation and treatment, as well as the importance of the use of traditional Chinese medicine. The prescriptions for Yiqi Huoxue flow further reflect the principle of syndrome differentiation and treatment, and play a better role in the treatment of diabetes complications. At the same time, acupuncture and moxibustion can play the role of dredging channels, activating collaterals, and harmonising qi and blood. It has gradually become an important means of treating diabetes complications. The combination of the two therapies will further expand the advantages of traditional Chinese medicine in treating diseases. Therefore, Yiqi Huoxue formula combined with acupuncture and moxibustion is an essential programme for the treatment of diabetes complications. However, at home and abroad, there is a lack of systematic and comprehensive sorting on the treatment of complications of diabetes with prescriptions for supplementing qi and moxibustion. However, at home and abroad, there is a lack of systematic and comprehensive sorting on the treatment of complications of diabetes with prescriptions for supplementing qi and activating blood circulation and the combination of acupuncture and moxibustion and moxibustion. This article mainly reviews the treatment of diabetic microangiopathopathy (nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy) and diabetic foot (DF) with Yiqi Huoxue prescription combined with acupuncture and moxibustion in recent years, in order to provide better ideas for clinical treatment.
