Pre-modern treatments for sugar diabetes

My google-fu has failed. I am looking for herbal or other standard treatments to manage type 1 (probably weren't any of note) or type 2 diabetes that pre-date the use of injectable insulin. I have come across the details of sanitariums in America using a diet controlled method, but I am more interested in how Asian and European cultures handled this before more modern methods developed. (Or did they? The death rates were rather high...)

Thank you!
