    임제연 , SONG YUN KYUNG , Lim Hyung Ho | 2011, 11(2) | pp.1~14 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract
    Objectives Some papers have raised a lot of concerns about relation among the prevalence of metabolic syndrome, serum ferritin and metabolic syndrome. Accordingly, we researched relation between the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and iron state. Methods A group of 1304 test subjects were gathered in university student medical examination in Sungnam metropolitan city. BIA for body position, body size and blood test were estimated. Results & conclusions The study represents an adult population of young people in their twenties. Therefore there is so little level for prevalence of metabolic syndrome than have ever known things. And actually, metabolic syndrome was closely connected with so high iron state.

    Cho,Yoo-Jung , 이아라 , 황미자 and 1 other persons | 2011, 11(2) | pp.15~24 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract
    Objectives The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between oriental obesity pattern, life habitual factors(eating attitude,physical activity) and psychological factors(depression, stress, self-esteem) in korean obese and overweight women. Methods This study was performed in obese and overweight(BMI ≥ 23 kg/m2) women in Korea (n=56). Simple anthropometry including weight,BMI, waist circumference, BIA(bioelectrical impedance analysis) were done. To assess psychological factors, the Rosenberg self-esteem scale (SES) questionnaire, Beck depression inventory (BDI) questionnaire and stress response inventory (SRI) questionnaire were administered. Regarding diet, Korean eating attitude test(KEAT-26) was done. International physical activity questionnaire(IPAQ) was administered for exercise and physical activity intensity and quantities. All values were verified using correlation analysis. Results 1. The subjects had stagnation of the liver qi>food accumulation>yang deficiency>blood stasis>spleen vacuity in the order. 2. Stagnation of the liver qi score had significant relationships with self-esteem(r=-0.520, p<0.05) and depression(r=0.688, p<0.01) in stagnation of the liver qi group. There was a relationship between food accumulation score and eating attitude(r=0.784, p<0.01)in food accumulation group. 3. Lean mass had a significant relationship with self-esteem(r=0.434, p<0.05) fat mass had a significant relationship with stress (r=0.633, p<0.01) and in stagnation of the liver qi group. 4. Physical activity had significant relationships with lean mass(r=0.628, p<0.01) and with fat mass(r=-0.478, p<0.05) in group. Conclusions This study maintained that psychological factors play major roles in obesity with symptoms of stagnation of the liver qi and life habit(dietary factors and physical activity) in food accumulation.

    Study on Acute Toxicity of Fermented Ohyaksungi-san (Wuyaoshunqi-san) Extracts

    이지혜 , 곽동훈 , Tae-soo Kim and 1 other persons | 2011, 11(2) | pp.25~32 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract
    Objectives The purpose of this study was to investigate the acute toxicity with oral administration in ICR mice of Ohyaksungi-san fermented with Lactobacillus sp. Methods In single oral administered toxic test, four groups were administrated different dosages(0, 1250, 2500, 5000 ㎎/㎏) of fermented Ohyaksungi-san. After single oral administration, we observed number of death, clinical signs, body weight changes, hematological values and autopsy. Results Compared with the control group, we could not find any toxic signs in the mortalities, clinical signs, body weight changes, necropsy findings and hematological values in all treated groups (1250, 2500 and 5000 ㎎/㎏). Conclusions These results indicate that the LD50 value of fermented Ohyaksungi-san extract might be over 5000 ㎎/㎏ and it have no side toxic effect to ICR mice

    The Effect of Stimulating Twelve Meridional Dermomeres though Moving Cupping Therapy on Obesity

    Joonggu Ji , 김미경 | 2011, 11(2) | pp.33~40 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract
    Objectives The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of stimulating Twelve Meridional Dermomeres though moving cupping therapy on obesity Methods We stimulated abdomen and upper arms in equational strength by using cups for 30minutes a week. It was totally ten times from April 2011 to June 2011. We checked body composition, body measuring and serum lipid test before procedure and after 1st, 4th,7th and 10th procedure. Results Body composition and abdomen and upper arms measuring were significantly decreased compared before procedure with after. TG in serum lipid test was signficantly decreased but TC, LDL-c and HDL-c in serum lipid test were not signficantly decreased. Conclusions Body composition and body measuring weren't decreased a wide variation, but it was a significant decrease. So it is effective on obesity stimulating Twelve Meridional Dermomeres though moving cupping therapy.

    The Analysis of Study Trends of Wild ginseng, Bovis Calculus, Ursi Fel, Moschus and The Study on Applied Possibility as Obesity medications

    김민우 , SONG YUN KYUNG , Lim Hyung Ho | 2011, 11(2) | pp.41~68 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract
    Objectives After organizing segmentations related to obesity from classics and each studies, we would like to examine the value of wild ginseng, bovis calculus, ursi fel and moschus as a obesity medicine. Methods We found out 4 drugs which are wild ginseng, bovis calculus, ursi fel and moschus from the classics, such as 「Shin-Nong-Bon-Cho-Kyung」, 「Myoung-Eui-Byul-Lok」, 「Bon-Cho-Gang-Mok」, 「Bon-Cho-Jong-Shin」, 「Bon-Cho-Bi-Yo」, 「Bon-Cho-Gu-Jin 」 and 「Deuk-Bae-Bon-Cho」, we searched websites such as RISS, Korean traditional knowledge portal, the society of Korean medicine for obesity research, Korean pharmacopuncture institute, the Korean academy of oriental rehabilitation medicine and Korean acupuncture & moxibustion society as well. Results 1. We couldn’t find the contents related to the efficacy of improving obesity through wild ginseng, bovis calculus, ursi fel and moschus from the classics. 2. Wild ginseng had a study dealing with the efficacy of anticancer, obesity, toxicity, immunity, sulfation, diabetes, plasma proteins,depression, hypertension, endometriosis and hair loss. Especially among 6 studies related to obesity, apart from the study that treated extract of wild ginseng directly to the cell or oral administration to the animals, also have studies that had an efficacy of improving obesity through injecting pharmacopuncture to acupuncture point and vein, etc. 3. Bovis calculus had a study about efficacy related to arthritis, liver, inflammation of cornea, obesity, anticancer, immunity, antacid,heart, lumbar pain, hypertension, toxicity, a digestive organ and sasang constitution, especially in case of obesity, had each studies about oral administration of complex prescription and about cell unit experiment of pharmacopuncture. 4. Ursi fel had a study about efficacy related to liver, arthritis, inflammation of cornea, immunity, obesity, anticancer, antacid, lumbar pain, digestive organ, toxicity, cell protection, skin ailment, etc. Especially in case of obesity, had each studies about oral administration of animal experiment and about cell unit experiment of pharmacopuncture. 5. Moschus had a study about efficacy related to liver, the central nervous system, arthritis, inflammation of cornea, immunity,obesity, anticancer, hypertension, heart, lumbar pain, etc. Especially in case of obesity, had one study about oral administration of complex prescription. Conclusion Through the result of probability as a obesity medicine of wild ginseng, bovis calculus, ursi fel and moschus, we could identify the possibility of each drug as a obesity medicine. Also in the future, it is considered that studies about one or complex prescription and pharmacopuncture as a obesity medicine will be needed.

    Abstract
    Objectives The modified fasting therapy(MFT) of traditional korean medicine uses very low calorie diet on a patient with chroic disease and obesity. During the fasting period of MFT, calorie intake is restricted under 600kcal. Adverse events such as hunger, heartburn,headache, and hair loss can occur because of fasting. In case of Gilbert's syndrome, Jaundice can arise without disorder of liver function and hemolysis because of increase of unconjugated bilirubin. We experienced a case of Gilbert's syndrome patient who appeared jaundice during the fasting period, so we report about that with litrerature review.
