Abstract: After linking the theory of Huangdi’s Canon of Medicine with his years’ clinical experiences, Professor L Renhe treats emaciation-thirst according to three stages: Pidan stage, Xiaoke stage, and Xiaodan stage. At Pidan stage, the primary syndrome is yin deficiency, so the therapy is tonifying spleen and stomach and nourishing yin; at Xiaoke stage, internal heat due to yin deficiency should be treated in the way of clearing heat on the basis of tonifying spleen and stomach and nourishing yin; at Xiaodan stage, also the end stage, qi and yin are consuming with blood stasis, so the therapy is recuperating the vitality with invigorating five organs. This article also discuss the origin of L Renhe’s thought by combining the description of emaciation-thirst recorded in Huangdi’s Canon of Medicine.

Key words: emaciation-thirst disease, diagnosis, staging and treatment, Huangdi’s Canon of Medicine
