Objective (s): In Persian Medicine (PM) diabetes mellitus is known as a dystempramental diseases (Su-e-mizaj) and is divided into two main types, hot and cold. Achieving agreed diagnostic criteria among PM experts for standardizing such criteria for identification of ‎two types of diabetes and its management is essential. This study aimed to examine diabetes mizaj criteria via consensus of PM physicians.
Methods: This was a cross sectional survey and conducted by the Delphy method. Diabetes mizaj symptoms was collected from PM literature, and patient and PM experts interview. Sixteen PM experts were requested to evaluate quantitative and qualitative value of these symptoms during 3 rounds of Delphi.
Results: Based on the results of third round; thirst, touch condition of hand and kidney, impressibility of air and food and face puffing, were considered as major criteria and urine color and smell and face and eye color were considered as minor criteria for identification of diabetic children Mizaj or Su-e-mizaj
Conclusion: This study extracted the agreed criteria for determining the diabetic children Mizaj. These criteria, can be used to diagnose, different Su-e-mizaj of hole body and organs and so two types of diabetes (hot and cold) in diabetic children. Quantifying the intended criteria might lead to more exact diagnosis of the patients’ mizaj.
