Results:
After the treatments, the NPS scores improved, and the frequencies of peak pain decreased.

Conclusions:
This clinical case indicates that bee venom acupuncture combined with Korean medicine may be effective for treating diabetic neuropathy patients.
Key words: diabetic neuropathy, type 2 diabetes, bee venom acupuncture, neuropathy pain scale (NPS)
