Yes: By having a "diabetic foot" simply means that you are diabetic and have a foot. A person with diabetes could develop various foot conditions including numbness, foot ulceration, and infection all of which could result in complications. If you are diabetic get yourself educated by a professional so that you know what to do and what not to do in order to prevent potential problems.
