In brief: Swelling

This could be vascular or kidney and both related to diabetes.
See your endocrinologist or family doc.

In brief: Swelling = edema

Can be the result of kidney dysfunction - also related to diabetes - see the primary care doctor and ease up on any sodium containing foods.

In brief: Many possibilites

Some causes of swelling of the feet can include systemic problems such as hypertension, and problems with the kidneys and localized issues such as arthritis, infection, lymphatic obstruction, blood clots, varicose veins, trauma (fracture, sprain, and tendonitis) and side effects to medication.
Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
