Saam acupuncture improved dyspepsia as measured by gastrointestinal symptom (GIS), visual analog scale (VAS), patient global assessment (PGA) and health-related quality of life as measured by FD-QoL and EQ-5D-3L.
Although there was no significant difference in GIS scores between the two groups at Week 4, the difference increased over time, and there was a significant difference between them when measured at Weeks 8 and 12 for the follow-up assessments.
The quality of life measured by FD-QoL and EQ-5D-3L was only improved in the acupuncture group.
