Brief Answer: You need investigations Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! Diabetes history of 13 years and edema of feet is concerning. Main thing we need to rule out in you is kidney function compromise. Edema of feet in diabetics occurs mainly due to improper kidney functioning. However, there are variety of other conditions that need to be excluded. As of now, apart from thorough physical examination, you need investigations like microalbuminuria, serum creatinine levels and blood urea nitrogen levels as early as possible to know about kidney function.
