Worldwide, diabetes mellitus affects approximately 130 million people. By 2010, it’s estimated that this number will increase to 220 million. There’s a growing need for any treatments to help control of this condition. Chinese medicine has recognized and treated diabetes as a distinct disease for 2,500 years, and modern research has shown that it can work better than many Western drugs, reduce the dosages of those drugs, alleviate their side effects and achieve better clinical outcomes when used in tandem with those drugs.
