Effect of Turmeric on Glycemic Status, Lipid Profile, hs-CRP, and Total Antioxidant Capacity in Hyperlipidemic Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patient


Shahryar Eghtesadi

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is the most common metabolic disorder worldwide. The increase in blood lipids and sugar in diabetic patients exacerbates the incidence of DM late-onset complications. This study examined the effect of turmeric supplementation on glycemic status, lipid profile, hs-CRP and total antioxidant capacityin hyperlipidemic type 2 diabetic patients. Inthis double blind, randomized clinical trial, 80 hyperlipidemictype 2 diabetic patients were divided into two groups. The intervention group received 2100 mg of turmeric powder daily for 8 weeks; while the placebo group received placebo over the trial period. Body weight, fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, serum insulin, insulin resistance index, triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), LDL-c, HDL-c, apolipoprotein A1, apolipoprotein B, hs-CRP, and total antioxidant capacity were measured before and after intervention.
