Hello Lilik Azizah,


Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease in the form of impaired glucose regulation in the body. Impaired insulin production or low insulin hormone sensitivity causes the body's cells to not be able to utilize glucose in the blood. As a result, glucose in the blood will continue to be high. High glucose levels will gradually damage the blood vessels. Besides diabetes can also damage the nerve fibers.


Swollen feet in diabetic patients is a common complication of the disease. Swelling in the legs of diabetic patients can be caused due to the following conditions:

Fluid retention (excess fluid coming out of the tissues) due to impaired kidney or heart function
Venous insufficiency in the legs, as a result, blood cannot go back to the heart and is held in the lower limbs
Infection in the form of cellulitis or early signs of diabetic foot

Blood clots in lower leg veins
Low albumin levels

Patients need to be seen by a doctor if they experience swollen feet. We recommend that you do re-control if there has been no improvement in symptoms. In addition to treatment from doctors, patients are also encouraged to do the following at home:

Blood sugar levels must be controlled
Lifting a swollen limb is higher than the position of the heart when lying down
Reduce salt consumption
Keep doing light movements using swollen feet
Avoid standing for too long
Keep the swollen feet clean
Make sure there are no injuries to the swollen area of ​​the foot
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
