will a diabetic medication or insulin show up on a urine drug test?

Unlikely: Urine drug tests are looking for specific drugs like marijuana, cocaine, other narcotic analgesics, benzodiazepines (xanax/valium /ativan) & any other drug specifically requested. Insulin & other diabetic meds are not drugs of abuse & thus not looked for.
