[摘 要] 目的：探讨穴位贴敷治疗单纯性肥胖的有效性、安全性。方法：108例患者随机分为2组，其中穴位贴敷组(穴贴组)58例，针刺组50例。穴贴组以中药制膏贴敷中脘、关元、气海等穴；针刺组采用单纯针刺中极、关元、气海等穴。3个疗程结束后观察疗效。结果：穴贴组总有效率为84.5%，针刺组总有效率为86.0%，经统计学处理差异无显著性意义(P>0.05)；2组体重、体质指数、腰围、臀围比较，治疗后较治疗前均有下降，组间比较无差别；腰臀比治疗前后无明显变化；临床症状积分比较，2组治疗后均有下降，组间比较无统计学意义。结论：中药穴位贴敷治疗单纯性肥胖不仅疗效确切，而且穴位贴敷使用方便，无疼痛及毒副作用，患者依从性好。
