Fasting blood glucose values and effects of curcumin on DN measured by urinary albumin/creatinine in noDM and DM mice. (a) Fasting blood glucose in mice in Experiments 1 and 2. 24 h urine was collected to measure Ualb/cr in noDM and DM mice. (b) Ualb/cr from urine collected on days 9-15 for noDM and DM mice given control chow (0 ppm curcumin) or chow with 5,000 ppm curcumin. Mice were fed curcumin post-Stz injections (Experiment 1). (c) Ualb/cr at 2, 4 and 7 weeks for noDM and DM mice given control chow (0 ppm) or curcumin chow (data pooled for mice fed 5,000 and 7,500 ppm curcumin). Mice were fed curcumin pre-Stz injections (Experiment 2). All data are log-transformed (log10). *P < 0.05
