There were 15,914 SS patients with CIC (SS/CIC) in Taiwan from 2002 to 2011; however, there were only 683 SS/CIC with a principal diagnosis of SS in LHID2000, 678 in LHID2005, and 635 in
LHID2010, respectively. In these three LHID datasets, more than 90% of SS outpatients had visited TCM clinics. However, not all patients visited TCM clinics for SS, and we only included principal
diagnosis SS cases for TCM visits. After removing 23 cases of duplicate data, we found 130 SS patients in LHID2000, 133 in LHID2005, and 126 in LHID2010. There were 366 SS patients and 4,867 visits with a principal diagnosis of SS in TCM clinics from 2002 to 2011. The recruitment flowchart for subjects treated for SS/CIC with CHM from the 3 million random samples in the Taiwan NHIRD is shown in Figure 1.
