There are two types of diabetes, Type 1, sometimes called juvenile onset diabetes as this affects young children and Type II used to be termed adult onset diabetes. In the past decade the age classification has been dropped as children represent almost half of Type II diabetics now.  Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease unusually incurs massive damage to the pancreas with an inability to produce adequate insulin.  Type II diabetes rarely shows such severe pancreas damage and is responsive to dietary changes. Repeated trials of low fat, high unrefined carbohydrate diet has shown marked improvements in both Type 1 and Type II diabetic patients.  The insulin dosage reduced by 40% to nil in some cases and the cholesterol levels showed a dramatic fall. The graph below demonstrates these relationships.

A second major "side-effect" recorded of those following a high carbohydrate, high fibre diet was a substantial fall in their cholesterol levels, as shown in the chart below:
