Diabetes 2 & IBS (lucky me)

I have Diabetes II and probably IBS. Is it unusual that I have higher blood sugar levels when the IBS symptoms are at their worst.

If that is the case it would seem logical to get the IBS symptoms under control and then the blood sugar rate will drop with my continued diet changes. A problem seems to be that some of the suggested IBS foods hinder the goal of dropping the blood sugar level.
I have seriously reduced the amount of food I eat (especially the carbs) but
my blood sugar levels never go below 120 on Glucophage 1000 mg. a day and usually end up in the bathroom at least 10 times a day. Even with a sleep med I average about 3-4 hours of broken sleep a night.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
