Kidney Disorder

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disorder (ADPKD) is a sort of hereditary kidney disorder in about 0.1%–0.4% of the world population. In this disorder, a patient forms numerous developing cysts in both kidneys. When cysts evolve bigger, they disrupt kidney function.

Examinations have shown that curcumin delayed the growth of such cysts in mouse models. This indicates its potential to become a part of the ADPKD treatment.
