1 Chronic hyperglycaemia in diabetes leads to the overproduction of free radicals and evidence is increasing that these contribute to the development of diabetic nephropathy. Among the spices, turmeric (Curcuma longa) is used as a flavouring and colouring agent in the indian diet every day and is known to possess anti‐oxidant properties. The present study was designed to examine the effect of curcumin, a yellow pigment of turmeric, on renal function and oxidative stress in streptozotocin (STZ… 
Effects of Turmeric (Curcuma longa) Extract in streptozocin-induced diabetic model.
TLDR
Although both did show some improvement in liver function, higher doses caused disturbance in liver enzymes and did not show histological evidence of liver tissue protection, the current study shows some potential risk of curcumin use.
Potential Therapeutic Effect of Curcuma longa on Streptozotocin Induced Diabetic rats
TLDR
Biochemical observations showing that feeding curcumin to the diabetic rats controlled oxidative stress by inhibiting the increase in TBARS and protein carbonyls and reversing altered antioxidant enzyme activities without altering the hyperglycemic state in most of the tissues are shown.
Protective Effect of Galega officinalis Extract on Streptozotocin-Induced Kidney Damage and Biochemical Factor in Diabetic Rats
TLDR
The results of the present study indicated that G. officinalis could be beneficial for the treatment of diabetes through improving tissue sensitivity to insulin and preventing tissue damages.
Therapeutic Effect of Amaranthus hybridus on Diabetic Nephropathy
TLDR
It is suggested that Amaranthus hybridus possesses significant nephronprotective effect against oxidative damage in diabetic rats and the histopathological study of kidney in drug treated rats shows significant protective effect against STZ oxidative stress.

TLDR
This study demonstrated, for the first time, the renoprotective effects of SDG in HFD/STZ-induced DN in rats through correction of hyperglycemia; attenuation of oxidative/nitrosative stress markers; downregulation of renal expressions of inflammatory markers NF-κB, TNF-α, and iNOS; along with upregulation of kidneys expressions of antiapoptotic markers survivin and Bcl-2.
Safely effective hypoglycemic action of stevia and turmeric extracts on diabetic Albino rats.
TLDR
It could be concluded that turmeric roots and stevia leaves extracts can be used treatment for type 2 diabetes.
Amelioration of Diabetic Nephropathy in STZ-Induced Diabetic Rats
TLDR
The present data could provide adequate confirmation of the efficacy of ethanolic extract of leaves of Acacia catechu for further experimental studies on a standardized formulation.
Aqueous extract of Berberis integerrima root improves renal dysfunction in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats
TLDR
It is suggested that aqueous extract of Berberis Integerrima root improves renal dysfunction in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats through controlling blood glucose and renal protective effects.
Effects of Hydroalcoholic Extracts of Cloves (Syzygium aromaticum) on the Serum Biomarkers, Antioxidant Status, and Histopathological Changes of Kidneys in Diabetic Rats
TLDR
This study demonstrated that S. aromaticum showed antioxidant properties and protected the kidneys of the experimented rats from renal damages, resulting from diabetes.

TLDR
This study showed that CMN through its antioxidant activity effectively salvaged CsA nephrotoxicity and prevented acute renal failure and related oxidative stress caused by chronic administration of cyclosporine in rats.
EFFECT OF CHRONIC TREATMENT WITH LOSARTAN ON STREPTOZOTOCIN INDUCED DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY
TLDR
The data suggest a beneficial effect of losartan in STZ - induced nephropathy in rats, which prevented the raise in cholesterol, creatinine, urea and blood urea nitrogen levels.
