Notes for this study:
1g of curcumin (Meriva; enhanced bioavailability) was taken in two divided dosages of 500mg in 25 diabetic patients without insulin therapy; an improvement in microangiopathic symptoms was seen as well as a reduction in edema associated with diabetes over a period of 4 weeks.

Microangiopathy recorded as 'blood flow', although only specific to small vessels.
