Objective: To observe the clinical efficacy of vital qi- strengthening and dampness- eliminating prescription( VQSDEP) in the treatment of type 2 diabetes with urinary infection. Methods: A total of 68 patients with type 2 diabetes with urinary infection were randomly divided into treatment group( n = 37) and control group( n =31). The control group received conventional Western medicine treatment,while the treatment group received VQSDEP in addition to the treatment for the control group. After 15 days of treatment,the two groups were compared in terms of urinary bacterial count,blood glucose and lipid levels,and overall response rate. Results: The treatment group had a significantly higher overall response rate than the control group( 91. 9% vs 64. 5%,P 0. 05). After treatment,both groups showed significant changes in blood glucose and lipid levels( P 0. 05),but only triglyceride level was significantly different between the two groups( P 0. 05). Conclusion: VQSDEP has good efficacy in the treatment of type 2 diabetes with urinary infection and can relieve the symptoms of urinary tract infection.
