Weightlifting & Exercise/Ankles

Question
I have been feeling pains in my ankles and wrists lately, but particularly in my ankles. I talked to an online doctor asking if maybe I was developing prediabetic symptoms (which to me seemed possible from my diet). He suggested it probably wasn't heart or stroke issues or diabetis, but rather maybe small fractures in my foot. Assuming this is nothing major that maybe has more to do with a lack of exercise I was wondering if you could recommend some ankle exercises that could help me keep my feet strong?
