From Dhuri, Punjab, India:

I am 19 years old, and I have had diabetes for five years. I take insulin injection three times per day. Can I take testosterone for a bigger physical appearance


I really don't think there would be any advantage at all for you to use testosterone, either with regard to your diabetes or your physical well being. In fact, you surely will aggravate your diabetes control. My advice is to forget about it, and talk to your doctor about what to do.
