Keywords: Silymarin, Kidney, Renoprotection, Diabetes mellitus

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education: 

Silymarin possesses antioxidant and antiproteinuric effects in humans and in animal models. Silymarin seem to have two different effects in diabetic patients. Firstly control of blood sugar and secondly, silymarin seems to have the ability to ameliorate the diabetic nephropathy, an effect beyond controlling the blood glucose in diabetics.
