Designed for patients with diabetes mellitus and used in a clinical trial at the Huai Hua Municipal People's Hospital. Based on this clinical trial, the doctors found that this formula was effective support for patients who have high blood sugar levels with few other symptoms, or they may have dry mouth, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness and tinnitus, blurred vision, low back and knee soreness and limpness, numbness of the extremities, as well as abnormalities in blood flow to the limbs.

This formula is for qi and yin dual vacuity complicated by blood stasis resulting in diabetes mellitus. Classical descriptions of thirsting and wasting all involve heat. However, these descriptions typically describe the later stages of diabetes mellitus, and, today, many people are diagnosed with diabetes without being symptomatic and without marked signs of heat. In fact, most contemporary Chinese sources agree that qi and yin dual vacuity is the most common early pattern of diabetes. Typically, this evolves from a liver-spleen disharmony based on the saying from the Nei Jing (Inner Classic), "[At] forty years, yin is automatically half." In other words, on top of a pre-existing spleen qi vacuity, there is now a yin vacuity as well. Although some patients develop diabetes early on in life, for most people, diabetes is a condition associated with aging. Therefore, in addition to qi and yin vacuity, blood stasis is a common complication. This is based on Yan De-xins assertion that essentially all chronic diseases associated with aging are complicated by at least an element of blood stasis. Blood stasis is definitely present in most of the complications of diabetes, such as neuropathy, nephropathy, retinopathy, and diabetic dermopathy. Thus the appropriateness of the principles of boosting the qi, nourishing yin, and quickening the blood.
