Curcumin for Diabetes

Diabetes is a serious affliction that can lead to problems in virtually every part of the body. If it is not checked it can result in blindness, heart disease, and kidney failure and nerve damage. In pregnant women, diabetes can be the cause of complications in the pregnancy and may trigger certain birth defects in the new-born child. A certain form of diabetes, known as gestational diabetes, may even show up during the period of the pregnancy.

Curcumin shows potential as a treatment for type II diabetes. Curcumin, the active ingredient in Turmeric, has been in the news lately because of the innumerable benefits of consuming it. Curcumin is beneficial for liver disease, heart health and even the brain. It lowers the risk of Alzheimer's disease and helps in the fight against cancer. Mice given high doses of curcumin showed less susceptibility to the development of diabetes, based on blood glucose levels, and glucose and insulin tolerance test results. The animals additionally experienced a small reduction in body fat and weight, even when calorie intake was the same or higher than mice that did not receive curcumin. Obese mice that received curcumin also had less inflammation in liver and fatty tissue compared with animals that did not receive the compound. After consumption of Curcumin, an increase in the activity of glucokinase enzyme was noted in the livers of the diabetic mice as compared to the control group which was not given any supplement. No effects on blood glucose, plasma insulin, and glucose regulating enzyme activities were reported in the non-diabetic animals. The results of the study showed that Curcumin acted as a glucose-lowering agent and antioxidant in the mice suffering from type II diabetes, while having no effect on the non-diabetic mice.

Diabetes and obesity are often comorbid conditions. One of the factors linking the two is inflammation. Curcumin is a popular anti-inflammatory agent. It suppresses the number and activity of inflammatory cytokines produced by immune cells in the fatty tissue. These cells are responsible for damage to the heart and pancreatic islands (which produce insulin). They also increase the muscle and liver resistance to insulin. By suppressing the cytokines in the body, Curucmin is able to ward off the looming diabetes and obesity. By suppressing the number and activity of inflammatory cytokines produced by immune cells in fatty tissue, which can damage the heart and insulin-producing pancreatic islands as well as increase muscle and liver insulin resistance, curcumin may help reduce some of obesity’s adverse effects.
