Objectives : We implemented the Artemisia Extract Moxibustion Method and had the clinical tests for the diabetes with it. Methods : We implemented Artemisia extract made by extracting the vasodilator and antioxidant compounds from Artemisia-CH2Cl2 fraction and the moxibustion method constructed with DC Power supply, controller, Artemisia pad, single and multiple heating terminal with PTC(Positive Temperature Coefficient) thermistor. And we performed to estimate the efficiency on the questionnaire and the clinical tests with 23 cases of the diabetics. Results : We have estimated the improvement over 60% the symptoms that were the upper and lower limbs pain, frequent urination, spontaneous perspiration, thirst, decrease of body weight, and malaise after the moxibustion treatment on 5 cases among 23 cases. And the 19 cases took the biochemical check-up after the moxibustion treatment. From the results of biochemical check-up, the average HbA1c of before treatment was 8.400%, and after treatment 7.632%. The average HbA1c was decreased significantly after treatment (P<0.001). And the average urinary blood of before treatment was 0.73, and after treatment 0.27. The average urinary blood was decreased significantly after treatment (P<0.001). In addition, the average FBS before treatment was 182.64 mg/dl, after treatment 161.77 mg/dl Conclusions : We could estimate that our proposed moxibustion method was a significant treatment method for the diabetes.
