Tryin2live,

Leg swelling with ulceration in diabetes is an emergency of the highest order. Get him to an emergency room because the outcome of the situation, if unattended, is loss of a leg.

Leg swelling by itself can be a sign of cardiomyopathy, or heart failure.

He REALLY needs to see a doctor.

If he is on any calcium channel blockers like Norvasc (amlodipine), diltiazem, nifedipine or verapamil, they can ALL readily cause swelling of the legs and ankles.
