Well, Im kinda at a loss as to what a "slimming pill" is. I know that if you are 20 lbs. or more overweight it has a major impact on your endocrine system and could be the cause behind your diabetes. There is tons of evidence out there that obesity is one of the major causes of diabetes.
Now Im going to depart from my partner in crime, Jeannie's opinion at this point (we usually line up on the same side of an arguement most of the time). She is right in that once you stop taking pills the adjustment period will have your body slowing down and trying to put the weight right back on again. HOWEVER, if you are seriously overweight and your doctor is willing to prescribe "diet pills" AND monitor you, that is probably the best route to go. Why? Because it will accelerate your metabolism and help you get the weight off!! and getting it off quickly and safely is what your ultimate goal is.
Pills don't excuse you from exercising, eating correctly or any of the other things that go with taking weight off, they just give you an "extra" advantage. ONLY people that have 50+ lbs to lose should be thinking about this type of extra help from their doctors, and in your case it sure would help your blood sugar!
Go back and talk to your doctor and find out what's involved with the "pills" and at the same time, look at some serious lifestyle changes that will help you lose that weight. Its eithter undergo a major lifestyle change, or be loaded up with medications and die way before your time. To me the choice is a no brainer.
