A member asked:

Can a swollen foot/ankle be caused by diabetes? just one side everyday for 3 years. not dvt, activity doesn't help.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Chronic injury: Without more information, it is difficult to make an assessment. This could be a variation in the way your body distributes fat due to a lipoma (focal fat deposit) or it could be due to chronic injury. With a history of diabetes, you may be developing loss of sensation to your foot and hurting it repeatedly. Consult your doctor.
