This study was conducted to find the possibility of DSOM (Diagnosis System of Oriental Medicine) as a diagnostic method according to alcohol intake.

49 men who drink alcohol over 40g per day and whose AUDIT scores were over 12 were allocated to the drinker group. 30 men who do not drink alcohol at all were allocated to the control (non-drinker) group. The study period was from June 15, 2006 to September 30, 2008. All of both groups were analyzed using DSOM.

There were some differences between the drinker group and the non-drinker group in stagnation of Ki(氣滯), deficiency of Yin(陰虛), insufficiency of YangKi(氣滯), heat syndrome(熱), dryness(燥), and insufficiency of Yang(陽虛).

We found out that DSOM can be a diagnostic method on alcoholic liver disease patients. However, other studies to supplement it should be continued.
Key words: Alcohol intake, DSOM(diagnosis System of Oriental Medicine), Gamma-GTP, heat syndrome(熱), Dryness(燥)
