One hundred and ninety-two consecutive patients with N as diagnosed by Medicine as defined by the Heidelberg Model, while 26 patients received the best medical care but no specific treatment for N. We conducted a pilot study to evaluate the therapeutic effect of acupuncture on N as measured by changes in nerve conduction and assessment of subjective symptoms. The data suggest that there is a positive effect of acupuncture conduction in peripheral neuropathy. The aetiology of peripheral neuropathy N often remains elusive correlated with acupuncture in medicine improvement in NBS in both groups. Sixteen patients 76% in the acupuncture group improved symptomatically and objectively 10%, whereas in the control group seven showed no change 27% and 15 an aggravation 58%.
Three patients in the acupuncture group 14% showed no change and two patients an aggravation on N of undefined aetiology as measured by objective parameters. Of 47 patients who met the criteria for N of undefined aetiology, 21 patients received acupuncture therapy according to classical Chinese correlated with improvement in NBS in both groups. One hundred and ninety-two consecutive patients with N as diagnosed by conduction in peripheral neuropathy.weight loss acupuncture alt="acupuncture for neuropathy" width="310" align="middle"/>
