Abstract  Limited medical knowledge, and the gaps between special medical terminology and the vocabulary used by consumers (Consumer Health Vocabulary, CHV) may cause the problem that health consumers often have difficulty in understanding and searching these information. This paper proposes a method of organizing consumer health information resources using topic maps, and the topic maps tools designed by the Ontopia corporation are adopted to organize the consumer health information resources about diabetes mellitus as the experiment. Different expressions of the same concept can be collected and the complex relationship between medical information can be displayed, so that consumers can not only initiate a search and browse the medical knowledge structures using their familiar vocabulary(CHV), but also understand exactly the medical knowledge.
