Yeah, increase your protein intake. In the past, when I've had significant gains in muscle mass (10 or so lbs for me) I've had to bite the bullet and up my insulin dose as well. Muscle has its own glycogen stores so I've just increased caloric intake without changing percentage of protein with success as well. A lot depends on what other activities your are doing besides weightlifting.
A good book, really for weightlifters rather than diabetics, is "Nutritional Timing" by Ivey. It will give you good information on how to fuel your workouts. You don't have to suffer high blood sugars, but you may need to increas your insulin levels to cover increased intake.
I guess ,I knew the answer all along , increase insulin . When I started lifting I had to worry about sugar dropping. Part of the problem is being LADA ;sometime the body doesn't know if it wants to be diabetic or not.
