Curcumin has many advantages, i.e., antioxidant, antiplatelet, anti-inflammatory, and antidiabetes. It applied for the maturation of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) in the diabetic end-stage renal disease of two diabetic patients. The administration of oral Curcumin examined the maturation on the 4th week and the 8th week. The results in both cases show maturity at the end of eight weeks without any complication.
