ecg showing LBBB,2D echo showing gd-2 DD,Doppler study of b/l lower limb arteries normal.hence the pt is having claudication pain in legs.give aspirin+clopidogrel+atorvastatin along with insulin

Claudication is unlikely with normal flow in the arteries...must be neuropathic pain

Echocardiography and doppler study of lower limb vessels is not related to right foot pain . Get s .uric acid done .Symptoms are part of diabetic neuropathy and diabetic foot.

Get his arthritis profile done with fresh Bl.sugar level,complete lipid profile.As Dr.Tarlekar n Dr.Parveen Yograj said. ...I also don't see any direct connection between foot pain n other investigations done.After the reports with tight Bl.sugar control treat OA/RA if any.
