I would put the dog on a raw diet and as little carbs as possible. Carbs turn to sugar which is not good for diabetes. I am a raw feeder and never had any issues with any medical problems. You want to give a high protein diet but eliminate as much carbs as possible. Anything white is carbs, rice, potatoes, bread ect. a raw diet will make him gain weight because its mostly protein. I can tell you how to do if if you want

I came across a site where someone said they give their diabetic dog cooked chicken breast mixed with pasta and cooked carrots, they mix it all up with some of the broth from the chicken.

I'd say find a different vet, if possible- one who will actually advise you on what to feed him and anything else you can do for his health. You shouldn't have to try to figure it all out by yourself.

raw chicken would be better than cooked as cooking kills some of the nutrients. Pasta is carbs and so are carrots.
