In brief: Probably not
There are a number of conditions that can cause ankle swelling.
You can get swelling within the ankle joint itself (called an effusion), or swelling in the tissue of the lower legs (called edema). Diabetes shouldn't cause either of these conditions. You likely have edema, which can be from leaky veins in your legs, to excessive salt intake, to your heart not pumping efficiently. See your doc.
