By Dr Greta Young Jie De
On behalf of Bo-Yi Academy in the Netherlands, Pearls of Wisdom Chinese Medicine as a collaborator of this event would like to offer this opportunity for Practitioners from Australia to attend this 4-day workshop on treatment of diabetes.
Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger. If left untreated, diabetes can cause many complications. Acute complications can include diabetic ketoacidosis, nonketotic hyperosmolar coma, or death. Serious long-term complications include heart disease, stroke, chronic kidney failure, foot ulcers, and damage to the eyes. Chinese Medicine plays an important role in the effective management of some of the more serious long-term complications of diabetes. Prevention and treatment involve maintaining a healthy diet, regular physical exercise, a normal body weight and the use of Chinese medicine.
Professor Ni Qing is the head of the Endocrine Department at the Guangan Men Hospital in Beijing specializing in the treatment of diabetes and related diabetic complications.
Professor Ni received his doctoral degree in 2000 from the Chinese Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing. His approach in the management of diabetes is to adopt the traditional Chinese medicine theory of pattern identification in the diagnosis of diabetes and subsequent treatment strategy. He advocates the unique approach by regulating yin and yang to reverse the impaired glucose tolerance of diabetic patients thus preventing the early onset of diabetic microvascular disease. His other clinical forte is to treat hyper and hypothyroidism, thyroiditis, hyeruricemia and gout. He is currently the Executive Director of the National Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital . Professor Ni studied under the renowned diabetes specialist Professor Lin Lan and inherited the academic philosophy and clinical approach of Professor Lin.
In 2008 Professor Ni was awarded a special prize for conducting the most outstanding post-doctoral training programme for treatment of diabetes. In 2010 he was awarded the “Star of Science and Technology” prize from the Chinese Medicine Society in Beijing for his outstanding contribution for treatment of diabetes.
Some of the topics covered during the 4-Day workshop are:
- Treatment based on the root, a selection of combined external and internal treatment
