    Curcumin Effect on Kidneys

    Curcumin Effect on KidneysCurcumin, a yellow pigment present in the rhizome of turmeric, has been widely used as a spice, additive or herb. The effects of curcumin on kidneys have been studied for years. Now, follow me to get facts on it.

    Benefits of curcumin on kidneys

    ● Curcumin prevents mitochondrial dysfunction in nephrotoxicity.

    ● Curcumin prevents renal hemodynamic alterations in chronic renal failure.

    ● Curcumin is a therapeutic agent in chronic renal failure.

    ● Curcumin induces renal Nrf2 translocation.

    ● Curcumin is an anti-inflammatory agent in renal injury.

    Renal inflammation is the main pathological change in many acute and chronic kidney diseases. Curcumin is abundant in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory contents, so it is helpful for reducing the kidney damages.

    The renoprotective effect of curcumin has been evaluated in several diseases, including Diabetic Nephropathy, Chronic Renal Failure (CRF), ischemia and reperfusion and nephrotoxicity induced by compounds such as gentamicin, adriamycin, chloroquine, iron nitrilotriacetate, sodium fluoride, hexavalent chromium and cisplatin.

    Therefore, curcumin is a good choice for kidney disease patients.


    Just like one coin has two sides, curcumin also has some side effects, if it is taken for a long time or with large dosage. Curcumin may cause the following side effects, such as:

    ● Allergic reaction, like skin rash, itchiness, or blisters.

    ● Mild stomach distress

    ● Menstrual flow

    ● Increased risk of bleeding

    ● Poisonous to the liver and gallbladder

    ● Lower blood sugar


    Since I do not know your specific condition, I cannot give you detailed suggestion. You can send you test report to, or consult our doctors online directly.

    One more thing you should know is that, no matter what benefits of curcumin are, they cannot replace timely treatments. Medication care should be designed by your doctor. We are also glad to help you, and you can trust us because we have nearly 30 years of treating experience.
