In brief: DM foot injury

Any diabetic patient with an injury to the foot should have an evaluation.
I recommend that you seek guidance as soon as you can so that a clinician can evaluate your foot. Injuries can sometimes result in fractures or blood collections called hematomas that can cause problems days to weeks after an injury. Due to the diabetes, you may not have felt the pain that a non-diabetic patient would feel.
