Veganism for a Diabetic

What are the pros and cons for being a Vegan when you are a Diabetic? I was on insulin a few months ago, and when I transitioned to Vegetarian diet, I started needing my insulin dosage lowered, then I went full Vegan and I no longer need Insulin now, I am diet controlled.
What nutritional need would a Diabetic need when becoming a Vegan?

First, congrats in controlling your diabetes and making a lifestyle change to get off injecting insulin. I too am a vegan but not full blown for I do eat fish for the protein. There are no pros in eating red blooded animal flesh. This is my opinion only, others may differ. Google search under "diabetic vegan nutrition" turned up 158,000 hits http://tinyurl.com/45pwnx. And "diabetes vs vegan" resulted in  1,390,000 hits, all positive on vegetarian diets.
