Objectives While understanding constitutions of various occupations can be beneficial in recommending alternative health education, disease treatments and prevention, such studies are scarce for announcers. The aim of the present study is to identify the distribution of constitutions among ground radio wave broadcasting announcers, and to describe the relationship between their constitutions and the frequency and prevalence rates of various complaints-diseases in the context of the announcers’ routine business. Methods Medical records in one Korean Medicine Clinic were analyzed. The unique pulse diagnosis of Eight Constitution Medicine (ECM), introduced by Dr. Dowon Kuon in 1965, was used to identify the distribution of constitutions among a convenience sample of ground radio wave broadcasting announcers based on the theory of inherent and organic strengths and weaknesses. Disease types were also recorded based on constitution-acupuncture therapy used to treat them. Descriptive statistics of frequencies and corresponding percentages were computed to summarize both the distribution of constitutions and disease types. Results While more than half of male announcers were Hepatonia (41.4%) and Pancreotonia (17.2%), most common constitutions of female announcers were Colonotonia (28.3%) and Renotonia (21.7%). Commonly identified complaintdisease types for this group of announcers included indigestion, cervicalgia (shoulder pain), xerophthalmia, allergic dermatitis and headache. Conclusions This study summarized the prevalence of disease types among ECM diagnosis in an announcer group. Future studies on a larger sample of announcers are expected to further analyze such relationships in order to provide a more systematic guidance for disease prevention and management.
