Re: Feeding Turmeric to IR & PPID horses

So at a very basic level I am completely confused. Everything I read online regarding glucose/insulin seems to refer to humans. Are horses that much different?. Here's is what I don't understand: If any substance such as tumeric/curcumin  has the ability to (A) increase the secretion of insulin or (B) increase the receptor cells ability to absorb glucose then what is the harm?  Does this not lower the amount of circulating glucose? Does slowing the transit of food through the gut help in reducing excess glucose or have the opposite effect?
