* Make sure that you manipulate your training around your insulin doses
* Always make sure that your pre and post-training nutrition is right (i.e. stabilize blood sugars, etc., and don't let them fall too low)
* Training in the afternoon or evening will give you more control over your blood sugar levels
* Make sure that you always have a source of sugar (i.e. jelly babies or something) nearby when training, in case your blood sugar drops

The added complexity of having to manage diet and blood glucose levels could be considered a disadvantage. Coincidentally, a conscientious diabetic and someone who is serious about his/her results in the gym will both follow a meal plan complete with measured portions and macronutrient breakdown.
You will hear people who have different types of meals throughout the day. All of my meals have roughly the same calories, and the same proportions of P, C, and F - makes insulin dosing more predictable.
