What is the difference between a diagnosis from the tongue and from pulse?

TCM diagnosis requires observing the patient (comprise of tongue reading), taking down details of the medical history records and symptoms, as well as palpation (includes but not limited to pulse taking). Hence, both are needed for an accurate diagnosis.

It is also important for patients to be transparent with his/her medical condition for the physician to make an accurate diagnosis.
