One of the most common complications of diabetes is neuropathic pain.  While the cause is still being researched, inflammation seems to be involved.

A new study took rats with diabetes and gave half curcumin daily for 28 days.  When they tested at the end of the study, the rats getting curcumin had lower markers of inflammation and pain sensitivity.
