Purpose: To observe the clinical efficacy on acupuncture treatment of functional dyspepsia. Methods: Major points including Zusanli (ST 36) were selected on the basis of meridian theory to treat functional dyspepsia with even reinforcing-reducing manipulations and electric stimulation. While commonly-used western medication domperidone was used in a control group. Results and conclusions: The total effective rate and the markedly effective rate were 93.8% and 63.3% respectively in the acupuncture group and 82.2% and 43.1% respectively in the medication group. The curative effect on nonspecific functional dyspepsia was better in the acupuncture group than in the medication group (P<0.05). Both treatments had marked effects on the dyskinetic type without a significant difference (P<0.05).
