Yin-Deficiency and Dry-Heat is uncertainly the primary pathogenesis of diabetes mellitus:

In the 9l cases of diabetes mellitus observed by the authors, there were 39 cases, 42%showed the Syndrome of internal stagnation of dampness and heat with middle-Jiao disorder, the next was

Qi stagnation and blood stasis with disharmonious Liver-Stomach, it showed in 27 cases, 29.7%, followed with Spleen-Kidney deficiency and exhaustion Syndrome, showed in 9 cases, 9.9%. Number of patients really showed the Syndrome of Yin-Deficiency and Dry-Heat, including mouth dryness, much drinking, polyphagia, pathologic leanness, hidrosis, Heat in Five-center, frequent urinaton with yellow Urine, constipation, red tongue without coating or thin and dry coating, fine quick pulse, was 26 cases, below 30%.

It displays the TCM pathogenesis and pathology of Dampness-Heat in Middle-Jiao, Liver-Spleen disorder, Qi and Blood circulation blocked, and Yin-Yang disharmony from the other aspect.
