Abstract: The method of knowledge discovery based on partial order structure theory has been applied to the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In this research, the information of symptoms, prescriptions, and herbs from 50 effective cases of middle-aged type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) patients treated by Professor Saimei Li with Chinese Medicine was processed with formal contexts, and then the corresponding partially ordered diagrams were obtained for the exploration of the medication rules. The results showed that the common symptoms of the middle-aged patients are mainly of heat syndrome. In regard of the treatment, the main prescription formula is Lizhong Wan combined with Gegen Qin Lian Tang for middle-aged patients. The combination of warm and cold formula aims at warming the spleen and dispelling the pathogenic wind, clearing pathogenic heat and eliminating dampness. This research can promote the inheritance and innovative development of Chinese medicine in an effective way.

Keywords: middle-aged type 2 diabetes mellitus; partial order structure theory; knowledge discovery; Saimei Li.
