you have got infection of tongue.Consult your doctor and let him see whether it is bacterial or fungal infection(fungal is common in diabetic) or any other lesion over tongue. as you said you are diabetic get blood sugar checked and see whether it is in control. if not consult your physician and adjust dose of medication which you are already taking.
maintain oral hygiene do the salt water gargling

best of luck
