I think that you should get your dad in to see the doctor.  Obviously, something is not right.

If your Dad has seen his docs and they don't know what it is and are not investigating further, you need to get him to another doc, preferably one that specializes in diabetes.  Swollen red legs are not a good sign, but could be due to a lot of things... the fact that your Dad is worried deserves attention on its own, and a good doc would investigate more and/or at least talk more with him and you about what could be going on.
