In brief: Maybe
You could, but there are a lot of possibilities that affect wound healing.
Thankfully, screening for diabetes is very easy - a simple blood test can tell you if you have it. If not, your doctor can help look for other causes.

In brief: MAYBE
Diabetes could be a factor. Smoking is a BIG factor. You need to see a podiatrist to determine the reason.
