AB  - OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to apply a rigorous traditional Chinese
      medicine (TCM) body constitution questionnaire (BCQ) to survey the prevalence
      rate of deviations in body constitution and to explore the health-related
      lifestyle behavior factors of deviations in body constitution. DESIGN: A
      cross-sectional study was administered through postal mail. Subjects were
      recruited from a national organization for breast cancer patients (Taiwan Breast 
      Cancer Alliance). SETTING/MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Data were obtained from 311
      breast cancer patients by questionnaires including a demographic record sheet,
      lifestyle behavior scales and the BCQ (Yang-Xu, Yin-Xu, and Stasis). Differences 
      concerning the presence of body constitutions were analyzed by Chi-square tests
      and analyses of variance, and potential predictive factors were analyzed using
      multivariate logistic regression. RESULTS: In total, 55.3% of the subjects had a 
      Yang-Xu constitution, 61.0% had a Yin-Xu constitution, and 47.6% had a Stasis
      constitution. A total of 42.8% of the patients displayed a combination of the
      three types of body constitutions. Feeling stressed, physical exercise, and
      favoring fried food were predictors of the combined Yang-Xu, Yin-Xu and Stasis
      constitutions (p<0.05). Staying up late was significantly associated with Yin-Xu 
      (p=0.017), and favoring salty food was significantly associated with Stasis
      (p=0.019). CONCLUSIONS: A high prevalence of deviations in body constitutions was
      observed in the follow-up stage of breast cancer patients. Increasing the
      adherence to healthy lifestyle behaviors might strengthen and balance body
      constitution, which could improve supportive care in breast cancer survivors.
