First thing to consider is that while being a vegetarian is great for some it isn't for others, so watch how you feel.  Being diabetic and going vegetarian can be tricky, because you have to avoid the simple carbs and make sure you get your good protein.  If I had diabetes and wanted to do this I'd do a lot of reading first and maybe see a holistic nutritionist to help me do it to make sure I didn't transition to a diet with too many carbs in it to replace the animal protein I had been eating.
