SUBSTANCE: invention refers to medicine, functional diagnostics and can be used for preclinical, predoctoral examination, assessment of the functional state of body organs and systems, and pre-diagnosis. The method involves measuring electrical conductivity (EC) of 24 representing points of 12 symmetrical meridians, determining an arithmetic mean (AM) value of these measurements and specifying a corridor of permissible values for this patient, to which the derived values are compared in order to assess the functional state of the patient's body. That involves using the following criteria: a ratio of total ECs of Yin meridian points to total ECs of Yang meridian points, a ratio of total ECs of arm points to total ECs of leg points, a ratio of total ECs of left-side points to total ECs of right-side points. ECs are measured at voltages 5V, and/or 9V, and/or 12V. If the measurements are taken at 9V, the measured ECs are re-calculated by formula: I new=9/(29/I measured-0.1)*Coeff, (I); if the measurement process is performed at 12V, the measured values are re-calculated by formula: I new=9/(29/I measured-0.1)*Coeff, (I); and at 5V: I new=1 measured*Coeff, (III), wherein in (I), (II) and (III) respectively: I new is the re-calculated EC; I measured is the measured EC; Coeff is a correction coefficient taking into account a meridian conductivity heterogeneity. The re-calculated values are transformed into adjusted ones by formula: I adjusted=I new/I mean, wherein: I adjusted is the adjusted EC; I new is the non-adjusted re-calculated EC; I mean is the arithmetic mean value of all the 24 measurements. That is followed by delimiting an individual normal corridor for this patient depending on the preset diagnostic sensitivity S and a width of corridor of the permissible EC values Wpv. The Wpv represents a range of EC values measured in this patient, whereas the diagnostic sensitivity S is specified depending on selecting the patients with a certain disease. Delimiting the individual normal corridor for this patient is ensured by measuring intermediate coefficients for lower Kl and upper Ku corridor limits respectively: Kl=1-(1-S)*Wpv/2.1 and Ku=1+(1-Kl)*1.1. Lower L and upper U limits of the individual normal corridor are determined: L=Kl* I mean and U=Ku* I mean. That is followed by comparing I adjusted to the derived limits of the individual normal corridor.

EFFECT: method provides high accuracy of the individual diagnosis.
