ABSTRACT

Objectives This case study is about a Soeumin patient with jaundice identified as Greater-Yin accompanied Jaundice pattern. In this study, we report significant improvements of anorexia, dyspepsia, fatigue and weight loss after treatment with Hyangsayangyi-tang, Insambaekhaogwanjung-tang and acupuncture. Methods The patient was identified as Greater-Yin accompanied Jaundice pattern and treated with Hyangsayangyi-tang, Insambaekhaogwanjung-tang and acupuncture. The Global Assessment Scale (GAS) was used to assess the improvements of anorexia, dyspepsia, fatigue and pelvic pain after the treatment. And the liver function test was performed to measure the overall function of the liver. Result and Conclusion The symptoms of anorexia, dyspepsia, fatigue and pelvic pain were improved from GAS 100 to GAS 0-10 for four months. And The liver function test showed improved the response to treatment. The levels of AST (aspartate aminotransferase)/ALT (alanine aminotransferase) decreased from 43/42 to 29/14 IU/L. The level of total bilirubin was decreased from 2.7 to 1.9 mg/dL. Furthermore total weight gain was 8 kg from starting weight of 36.5 kg for four months. In conclusion, this study shows that Sasang constitutional medicine can be effective and safe treatment for the Soeumin patient with jaundice.
