  Body weight (g) Food Consumption (g/day) Blood glucose (mg/dl) Urine volume (ml/24 hour)
Normal 255 ± 17 24.7 ± 6.0 111 ± 18 8 ± 3
Diabetes 216 ± 12* 36.6 ± 6.1* 469 ± 81* 53 ± 18*
Diabetes + Curcumin 200 ± 30*# 32.2 ± 3.2*# 451 ± 123*# 55 ± 14*#
  1. Twenty four hour urine excretion (measured over 3 consecutive days) was quantified at 6 weeks of diabetes. Values are mean ± SD of 8 rats each in normal group and diabetes + curcumin group and 7 rats in diabetes group. *P < 0.02 compared to normal, #P > 0.02 compared to diabetes.
