Fibre is sometimes considered when counting carbs. Some people deduct the amount fibre in the carbs and then use that value for counting how many carbs they eat (this is net carbs). Other people just count total carbs.
i guess it depends how much detail you want to go into. Fibre should have little impact on blood sugar as by definition it cannot be digested.
For weight and blood sugar management controlling how much carbs you eat each day is an essential part of management. Some people find that low carb, moderate protein, higher healthy fats diet is helpful in management.
