In brief: Low carb, high prot.

A low carbohydrate/high protein diet is likely the best to help with these things.
It does depend on the type of diabetes as type i needs Insulin and so more sugar/carbohydrate might be needed to avoid hypoglycemia, and type ii doesn't need Insulin and so less carbs may be needed. But either way a diet rich in proteins and vegetables like carrots and celery and exercise and low in carbs is good.
