Curcumin and diabetes-related kidney disease

Curcumin, a component of the Indian spice turmeric, is known to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, and has recently been studied for its potential effectiveness against a wide range of diseases, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Here’s just one study from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine’s list of newly fund research: “Efficacy/mechanism of curcumin in diabetic nephropathy.” This study seeks to understand mechanisms and efficacy of curcumin against diabetes-related kidney disease.
