Full description

Hemodialysis patients over 18 years were recruited after fulfilling the inclusion criteria.Seventy-one hemodialysis patients were randomized into two groups: the trial group (n =35 ) and the controls (n =36 ); a randomization numeric table was used for allocation sequence . Trial group received turmeric and control group received placebo for 12 weeks. Biochemical determinations included levels of serum albumin (Alb), potassium (K) ,blood urea nitrogen (BUN), serum creatinine (Cr), IL-6 level, TNF- α , and liver function tests and hs-CRP at the start and end of the study were measured.
