Summary This book presents an in-depth analysis using a 'whole evidence' approach of Chinese medicine treatments for diabetic kidney disease. It is the 10th volume in the Evidence-based Clinical Chinese Medicine series and is an essential reference tool for Chinese medicine practitioners interested in kidney diseases and nephrology. The book provides a comprehensive description of diabetic kidney disease from conventional medicine and Chinese medicine. It includes a summary of Chinese medicine treatments used in classical Chinese medicine books, as well as treatments that have been verified in clinical studies. Written by internationally recognized, well respected leaders in Chinese medicine, this book is ideal for Chinese medicine practitioners and students who want to keep up to date with the latest research to support their clinical practice. Providing summaries of the classical and modern literature in one book gives readers easy access to the evidence that will ensure their clinical practice incorporates an evidence-based approach. Chinese medicine treatments in the book include herbal medicine, acupuncture and combinations of these therapies. Treatment effects are described in terms of progression of disease, change in kidney function, markers of kidney damage, and indicators of risk factor control. Herbal formulas, herb ingredients and acupuncture points are analysed and discussed in relation to treatments described in clinical textbooks and guidelines, clinical trials and those identified in classical literature.
