Chinese kruiden en diabetes

Berichtdoor willem_betz » 10 jul 2011, 13:27

Die kruiden worden door alterneuten vaak aangeprezen om de complicaties van diabetes te behandelen (neuropathie)
Trouwe skepp-lezers zullen wel niet uit hun stoel springen van verbazing, maar ja nu is door de Cochrane Collaboration duidelijk aangetoond dat het niet werkt:
Abstract
Background
Chinese herbal medicine is frequently used for treating diabetic peripheral
neuropathy in China. Many controlled trials have been undertaken to
investigate its efficacy.
Objectives
To assess the beneficial effects and harms of Chinese herbal medicine for
people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
Search strategy
We searched the Cochrane Neuromuscular Disease Group Specialized Register
(15 June 2010), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL)
(Issue 2, 2010 in *The Cochrane Library*), MEDLINE (January 1966 to June
2010), EMBASE (January 1980 to June 2010), AMED (January 1985 to June 2010),
Chinese Biomedical Database (CBM) (1979 to June 2010), Chinese National
Knowledge Infrastructure Database (CNKI) (1979 to June 2010), and VIP
Chinese Science and Technique Journals Database (1989 to June 2010). We
searched for unpublished literature in the Chinese Conference Papers
Database and Chinese Dissertation Database (from inception to March 2010).
No language or publication restrictions were used.
Selection criteria
We included randomized controlled trials of Chinese herbal medicine (with a
minimum of four weeks treatment duration) for people with diabetic
peripheral neuropathy compared with placebo, no intervention, or
conventional interventions. Trials of herbal medicine plus a conventional
drug versus the drug alone were also included.
Data collection and analysis
Two authors independently extracted data and evaluated trial quality. We
contacted study authors for additional information. The data analyses were
carried out using Review Manager 5.1 (Cochrane software).
Main results
Thirty-nine randomized trials involving 2890 participants were included. All
trials were conducted and published in China. Thirty different herbal
medicines were tested in these trials, including four single herbs (extracts
from a single herb), eight traditional Chinese patent medicines, and 18
self-concocted Chinese herbal compound prescriptions. The trials reported on
global symptom improvement (including improvement in numbness or pain) and
changes in nerve conduction velocity. There was inadequate reporting on
adverse events in the included trials. Most of the trials did not mention
whether they monitored adverse effects at all. Only two trials reported
adverse events: one occurred in the control group in one trial and in which
group was unclear in the other trial . Conclusions cannot be drawn from this
review about the safety of herbal medicines due to inadequate reporting.
Most of the trials were of low methodological quality and therefore the
interpretation of any positive findings for the efficacy of the included
Chinese herbal medicines for treating diabetic peripheral neuropathy should
be made with caution.
Authors' conclusions
Based on this systematic review, there is no evidence to support the
objective effectiveness and safety of Chinese herbal medicines for diabetic
peripheral neuropathy. No well designed, randomized placebo controlled trial
with objective outcome measures has been conducted.
