There are potential negative health-related side effects of turmeric. Turmeric is not for everyone, and there are situations when you likely should discontinue taking it.
Below I've outlined the 5 most common turmeri ... c side effects as reported in the medical literature. If any of these conditions apply to you (for example, do not take if you have gallstones or kidney stones), proceed with extreme caution and only under the advice of your health care provider.
Blood Thinning. According to the National Institutes of Health, turmeric may slow blood clotting. Avoid combining turmeric with anticoagulant and/or antiplatelet drugs. If you take blood thinning medication, consult with your health provider before eating turmeric in food or taking turmeric supplements. vintage inspired wedding items in short length
Examples of medications that act as blood thinners include aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.), warfarin (Coumadin), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, etc.), and others. Don't take turmeric with these or related drugs.
Since turmeric can slow blood clotting, avoid it if you take herbal supplements that slow clotting. The NIH website mentions angelica, clove, danshen, garlic, ginger, ginkgo, Panax ginseng, red clover, and willow as examples.
Due to blood thinning side effects of turmeric, stop taking turmeric at least two weeks before any surgical procedure.
Diabetes. Turmeric may lower blood sugar. Avoid turmeric if you take diabetes medications, since turmeric could cause your blood sugar to fall even further. This could result in hypoglycemia.
Gallbladder. The NIH recommends avoiding turmeric if you currently have problems with your gallbladder. If you have gallstones or a bile duct obstruction, turmeric may cause your condition to worsen.
Pregnancy. Turmeric should be avoided during pregnancy. According to the NIH, turmeric may stimulate the uterus or promote a menstrual period. NIH also recommends not taking it during breast feeding.
Stomach Complications. Interference with antacid medications is a possible side effect of turmeric, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Turmeric may cause increased stomach acid if taken with antacid drugs such as Tagamet, Pepcid, Zantac, Nexium, or Prevacid.
Although research shows turmeric may be effective as a treatment for upset stomach, it may aggravate gastric reflux disease. If you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), pay attention to how turmeric affects you. Discontinue taking it if you experience side effects like worsening reflux.See More
