Abstract: Objective To study the correlation between syndrome factors of type 2 diabetes and carotid atherosclerosis. Methods There were 1 452 cases of type 2 diabetes chosen and data of TCM four examinations was collected. The syndrome factors were extracted with factor analysis combining experts’ opinions. The patients were given color Doppler examination of carotid artery. The correlation between syndrome factors of type 2 diabetes and carotid atherosclerosis was studied by using Logistic regression analysis. Results The main syndrome factors of type 2 diabetes were yin deficiency and qi deficiency, secondary factors were yang deficiency, blood stasis and phlegm dampness, and combined factor was excess heat. The disease positions were mainly liver, spleen and kidney. After regulating traditional risk factors, phlegm dampness and blood stasis were significantly correlated to positive rate of carotid atherosclerosis. Conclusion Among the syndrome factors of type 2 diabetes, phlegm dampness and blood stasis may exacerbate the degree of carotid atherosclerosis.

Key words: type 2 diabetes, carotid atherosclerosis, syndrome factors
