Abstract

Relatively little is known about the reliability of Chinese medicine (CM) diagnosis. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), there are two main theories that guide the practitioner to a CM diagnosis, the Eight Guiding Principles and the Zang-Fu theory. An inter-rater reliability study using these theories was conducted on a group of Australians with mild Hypercholesterolemia.
