  1. Values are expressed as mean ± SD for each group, n = 10 for each group
  2. NC negative control, DC diabetic control group, Diab-Diam treatment group (fed a normal diet plus diamicron), Diab-Cur treatment group (fed a normal diet plus curcumin)
  3. aValues are significantly different from negative control (P < 0.05)
  4. bValues are significantly different from diabetic control group (P < 0.05)
