Zheng et al analyzed 325 participants with diarrhea treated with acupuncture and found that that chronic diarrhea patients with higher weekly stool frequencies, less abdominal pain and receiving acupuncture treatment at He-sea acupoints may be more likely to respond to acupuncture treatment. Their findings can contribute to the clinical prognosis for the acupuncture treatment to the patient with chronic diarrhea.
