Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the therapeutic effect and the hemorrheology change of berberine in new diagnosed patients with type 2 diabetes combining nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

METHOD:

Sixty patients, in our department from March 2009 to March 2010, with type 2 diabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease were randomly divided into two groups. One group was given berberine, another group was given Xuezhikang, both for 12 weeks. The indicators, include B-ultrasound of liver, triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspertate aminotransferase (AST), hemorrheology, were detected before and after treatment.

RESULT:

After treatment by berberine, B-ultrasound of liver were better than before, the effective rate was 70%, vs 73.3% after treatment by Xuezhikang. ALT, AST, TC, TG, LDL-L, hemorrheology (including the whole blood viscosity, whole blood viscosity, high cutting reduction of whole blood viscosity, plasma cutting reductive low viscosity, blood sedimentation, RBC deposited, fibrinogen) were significantly lower than before, however, HDL-L significantly increased (P<0.05). The therapeutic effect of xuezhikang was the same as berberine. The distance between the indicators of the two groups was no different.

CONCLUSION:

Berberine can obviously improve the conditions of new diagnostic T2DM patients with nonalcoholic liver lesions, effectively reduce hemorrheology indicators, and has good application prospect.
