In brief: Yes
Diabetics can be cadaver kidney donors if they have normally functioning kidneys.
It's not a good idea, however, to be a living donor because diabetes can attack your remaining kidney and accelerate your own path towards kidney failure.

In brief: No
Probably not; but some variables may change such as tendency to diabetes rather than actual Insulin use.
Some patients develop Insulin resistance due to massive obesity. Once corrected this is no longer a problem.
