Supplementary Figure 1: Basal metabolic rate (BMR) and Urine volume of 24 hours in Kidney-yang deficiency rats. (a) Averaged BMR. BMRs were measured with Kalabukhov-skvortsov respirometer. (b) Urine volume for 24 hours. * p<0.05, unpaired student's t test; n=51 for control, 63 for model.

Supplementary Figure 2: Locomotor activity took place in the Open field chamber. (a) Moving distance measured for 5 minutes. (b) The averaged jumping times of 5 minutes. (c) Staying time at the board zone of the chamber. The duration which the Kidney-yang deficiency rats stayed at the board zone was increased significantly (** p<0.01, student's t test). (d) For Kidney-yang deficiency rats, the time of staying at center zone of the chamber decreased significantly (** p<0.01, unpaired student's t test); n=51 for control, 63 for model.
