Here are some more suggestions. I'm not a doc and know little about you, but here goes, also don't have to do all of this and don't mean to overwhelm you either.
In this podcast, Peter Attia interviews Omega 3 researcher Bill Harris. Harris discusses some of the fish oil studies with prescription fish oil. He notes you don't need the prescription versions and Attia notes he trusts the Nordic Naturals and Carlson's brands.
In this podcast, Peter Attia interviews Iñigo San Millán. San Millán is a proponent of what he calls "Zone 2" training. Attia notes he has a patient who is a type 1 diabetic. This person does a long walk at Zone 2 intensity after he eats and his insulin requirement is 9 IU's - remarkably low for a T1. Dr. Phil Maffetone has a qualitatively similar approach, suggesting people spend a lot of time exercising at a heart rate of 180-age. More details here.. An even simpler approach is to do exercise and always breathe through your nose. Attia notes this approach, which is fairly low intensity, is training your mitochondria.
Dr. Roy Taylor at the MRI Centre of Newcastle, UK found that T2 diabetes was responsive to a very low calorie diet for 8 weeks. One of the things he discovered was that a few grams of fat on the pancreas and liver were responsible for insulin/blood sugar issues. This fat was one of the first to be used in his low calorie studies.
Dr. Satchin Panda of the Salk Institute studies circadian rhythm. He suggests "time restricted feeding." Basically confining your eating during the day to a limited window. Dr. Bredesen, in his book, suggests a 16 hour fast for ApoE4's. Panda goes into detail in this podcast.
Taking this a little further is Dr. Jason Fung. His a Toronto nephrologist who treats people with fasting, among other things. His book is here and website here. As well a podcast with Peter Attia.
Bredesen's book linked above has diet suggestions. So does Dr. Steve Gundry in several of his books 1 and 2
