To observe the therapeutic effects of auricular point sticking in managing functional dyspepsia.
Seventy patients with functional dyspepsia were randomly divided into two groups, with 35 patients in the treatment group receiving auricular point sticking therapy, and the other 35 patients in the control group managed by taking Domperidone orally. The therapeutic effects were evaluated 4 weeks later.
The total effective rate was 85.7% in the treatment group and 82.9% in the control group. Although the difference of the total effective rate between the two groups was not significant, the treatment group was superior to the control group in the improvement of several symptoms (P<0.05).
Auricular point sticking therapy is effective in treatment of functional dyspepsia, and compared to Domperidone, it is better in managing gastric pain, abdominal bloating, and belching.
