Brief Answer:
It is important to do kidney function test and get examined clinically

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing back with an update.

1. There are many conditions which can cause swelling of legs and face. In diabetes it is important to check your kidney functions if you are having swelling of legs and face. Other causes of swelling in legs and face include heart disorder, thyroid problems and liver problems. Without doing a complete clinical examination, it is difficult to know the reason for your swelling of face and legs. Treatment can be given only after knowing the reason for swelling in legs and face.

2. I would also like you to send the report which tells about arthritis. It will help to know if you got any x ray done.

3. In diabetes, a person can have kidney problems, nerve problems and eye problems after few years. Therefore you should get your kidneys, nerves and eyes checked every year.

Hope your query is answered.
