Oral Supplementation Of Turmeric Decreases Proteinuria, Hematuria, And Systolic Blood Pressure In Patients Suffering From Relapsing Or Refractory Lupus Nephritis: A Randomized And Placebo-controlled Study
|Trial Design||Double blind|
|Trial Length||1-6 months|
|Number of Subjects||24|
At a dose of 500mg turmeric (22.1mg curcumin) taken thrice a day with meals, turmeric was associated with exerting an anti-inflammatory effect on kidney tissue (shown by reduced pro-inflammatory cytokines) and a reduced systolic blood pressure in a model of nephritis associated with lupus.
Proteinuria was decreased in the experimental group using turmeric.
