In brief: 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.

In brief: Anyone with diabetes

Whether they are Insulin dependent, non Insulin dependent can develop a diabetic foot.
The only real criteria is to have diabetes and to have a foot.
