Abstract: Objective: To analyze the level of blood lipids in the mild cognitive dysfunction(MCI) patients and observe the effect of the moxibustion of Zhuang medicated thread on it. Methods: 60 MCI patients were selected as the observated group in the routine healthy physical examination, and 60 healthy elderly patients were selected as the control groups. They compared with their level of blood lipids. Then 60 the observed cases were randomly divided into the medicated thread moxibustion treatment group and the routine acupuncture treatment group which each include 30 cases. The observated group were acupunctured by the moxibustion of Zhuang medicated thread therapy, while the control group were treated with the routine acupuncture for a course of treatment. Then the serum six blood lipids were LDL-C, compared with each other, analyzed the influence of the two groups. Results: 1. The concentrations of Apo-A1, Apo-B, TC and TG in MCI patients were higher than those of healthy peers, while HDL-C was lower than normal group. 2.Both the“YiQiTiaoXue, FuBenPeiYuan” moxibustion methods and the controled acupuncture could significantly lower the higher LDL- C, Apo-A1, Apo-B ,TG, TC. While the moxbustion method also can increase HDL-C (P<0.05) after their theatment with statistical significant (P<0.05) meaning. 3. The“YiQiTiaoXue, FuBenPeiYuan” moxibustion of Zhuang medicated thread method could not only increase blood HDL-C lipids but also reduce LDL-C，Apo-A1, Apo-B, TC，TG (all P< 0.05), which were better than the conventional acupuncture treatment group. Conclusion:1. The abnormal blood lipid level in MCI patients is taken as a risk factor.2. Being their effectively preventing and controlling the blood lipid function in MCI, the “YiQiTiaoXue, FuBenPeiYuan”
moxibustion of Zhuang medicated thread and routine acupuncture method are both effective methods. 3. The “YiQiTiao Xue, FuBenPeiYuan” moxibustion of Zhuang medicated thread is a beneficial method with its preferred improving the blood lipids ability in MCI to the conventional acupuncture.
