Notes for this study:
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 118 participants with type 2 diabetes were assigned to take either placebo or 500 mg of curcuminoids with 5 mg of piperine daily for 3 months.

25% of participants failed to complete the trial. Compared with the placebo group, the curcumin group saw a statistically significant reduction in weight/BMI, fasting glucose, HbA1c, c-peptide, ALT, and AST. There was no statistically significant difference for insulin, hd-CRP, creatinine, HOMA-IR, HOMA-B, or hepatic steatotic index.

When grouped by gender, males had a statistically significant decrease in glucose but not females, and females had a statistically significant decrease in HbA1c and AST but not males.
