Brief Summary:
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and increase of body mass index (BMI) are two one of the most common risk factors for plantar pain and related disability. The aim of our study was to evaluate the relationship between plantar pain, balance and foot function in diabetic DM patients has with different BMI.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. the Portable Computerized Kinesthetic Equilibrium Device (SportKAT 550) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

  2. Foot Function Index [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Foot Function Index of 23 items, and evaluates the pain, disability and activity limitation. The each of the pain and insufficiency subscales consist of 9 items and the activity limitation subscale includes 5 items. Patients score their foot pain level with Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) in various situations during the last 1 week. To calculate the scores of the index, the score of each item are summed, then divided by possible the maximum score can be obtained from the FFI. Higher scores indicate greater pain, disability and activity limitation level.

  3. Manchester Foot Pain and Disability Index [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Manchester Foot Pain and Disability Index consists of 4 subsections including 9 questions for inadequacy, 5 questions for pain, 3 questions for concern and 2 questions for difficulty. Each item is scored between 0-2. The total score is calculated by summing the scores from all items. Higher scores indicate worse health situation.
