Many Western medical diseases are diagnosed while they are still asymptomatic via blood or urine analysis or imaging studies. This creates certain problems when using Chinese medical pattern discrimination. The goal of this class is to understand why the textbook pattern discriminations of certain Western medical diseases are incomplete, and what to do about this dilemma in clinical practice. Specific diseases that we will discuss include hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes mellitus.
