Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To observe the efficacy differences between acupoint catgut embedding combined with auricular point pressure with beans and nilestriol on menopausal syndrome of liver-kidney deficiency type, and to explore their effects on estradiol (E2).

METHODS

Sixty patients with menopausal syndrome of liver-kidney deficiency type were randomly divided into an acupoint stimulation group and a medication group, 30 cases in each group. The patients in the acupoint stimulation group were treated by acupoint catgut embedding at Taixi (KI 3), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Shenshu (BL 23), Ganshu (BL 18) and Taichong (LR 3), combined with auricular point pressure at Gan (CO12), Shen (CO10), Neifenmi (CO18), Shenmen (TF4), Pizhixia (AT4); the treatment was given once a week for consecutive four weeks. The patients in the medication group were treated with oral administration of nilestriol, 1 mg, once a day, combined with oral administration of oryzanol, 20 mg, three times per day for consecutive four weeks. The clinical symptom score was compared between the two groups before and after treatment as well as in follow-up visit. The level of E2 was obserced before and after treatment, and the clinical effect was compared.

RESULTS

(1) Compared before treatment, the clinical symptom score in the two groups was significantly reduced after treatment and in follow-up visit (all P<0.05); In follow-up visit, the clinical symptom score in the acupoint stimulation group was significantly lower than that in the medication group (P<0.05). The different value before treatment and at follow-up in the acupoint stimulation group was better than that in the medication group (P<0.05). (2) Compared before treatment, the level of E2 in the two groups were increased after treatment (both P<0.05); compared before and after treatment, the difference in the treatment group was significantly higher than that in the medication group (P<0.05). (3) After treatment, the total effective rate was 93.33% (28/30) in the acupoint stimulation group, which was similar to 90.00% (27/30) in the medication group (P>0.05).

CONCLUSIONS

Compared with nilestriol, acupoint catgut embedding combined with auricular point pressure with beans could better improve clinical symptoms for patients with menopausal syndrome of liver-kidney deficiency type, and increased the level of E2.
