In brief: Not usually

The classic symptoms of diabetes includes increased thirst, urination and hunger. If you become hypovolemic from urinating too much (your body trying to get rid of the extra glucose in the blood), you could become light-headed if you stand up too quickly.
This sounds like you should discuss your dizzy spells with your dr. To make sure you are safe.
