I have been diabetic for 9 years, fortunately I have not had any negative reactions, yet the last two nights my ankles have been getting very swollen. Has anyone dealt with this small problem before.

I too have alot of swelling but mine is the entire leg as well as my feet,so I donot think mine is from the diabetes,doctor does monitor it and reomends lying down with feet up.It does help for a while.
