Work with your doctor to develop a good diabetes treatment regimen.
Try to utilize diabetes drugs that do not cause weight gain if possible. Start a consistent exercise and diet program. Eat more soluble fibers (oats, lentils, apples, berries...). Keep track of bs and keep close contact with your doctor.

The first source of information would be the american diabetes association, which has available a huge amount of literature on the subject.
One can look up diabetes on google - but be careful that you realize that the material might not necessarily be checked for acuracy. I have recently released an informational dvd called "diabetes swweet 'n simple" which discusses the basics of the disease.
