HKBU to announce clinical observation results of Chinese medicine treatment of hyperthyroidism on Wednesday

浸會大學後天發佈中醫藥治療甲亢臨床觀察結果

The School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) recently conducted a clinical observation on 115 patients who received Chinese medicine treatment for hyperthyroidism. The results indicated that Chinese medicine is effective in improving the symptoms of patients. 

Hyperthyroidism is a common endocrine disease in which the thyroid gland is overactive and makes more thyroid hormones than the body needs. The excess secretion of the hormone thyroxine speeds up the body’s metabolism, causing many of the body’s functions to speed up, such as the nervous, circulation and digestive systems. Hyperthyroidism symptoms are complex and as the condition is difficult to cure, treatment can be a long process and there is a high recurrence rate.

Mr Leung Ho-wing, Lecturer I of the Clinical Division of SCM, will announce the detailed clinical findings at a media session on Wednesday. A patient will be invited to share information about her treatment process. Details of the session are as follows:

Date:    15 November 2017 (Wednesday)
Time:    11 am
Venue:  SCM 809, 8/F Jockey Club School of Chinese Medicine Building
            HKBU Baptist University Road campus (new campus)
            7 Baptist University Road, Kowloon Tong

You are cordially invited to send reporters/photographers to cover the above event. For media enquiries, please contact Jasmine Lau of HKBU Communication and Public Relations Office at 3411 7828 or 7472 2122.
