I eat tons of non starchy veggies and am a vegetarian that eats goat cheese, fish and poultry. Carbs are carbs no matter what a person's diet it, so without being a dietician I will go out on a limb and say that vegetarian diabetics do not have extra carb allowances.
There are other forms of vegetarian than vegan. One type of vegetarian eats eggs, cheese and some will add in fish for protein. Some vegetarians will eat chicken and turkey also.
When I was first diagnosed as insulin resistant I saw a holistic doctor and nutritionist. Both nixed the vegan diet for me. The holistic doctor, at the time, normally recommended a "macro" diet, which is somewhat consistent with a vegan diet but no white sugar or flour.
Good luck in your quest! Carol
