In brief: Yes.

Any infection can cause uncontrolled sugar swings.
If you use a glucometer to check your sugars, you might want to be extra vigilant when you are ill. Also, be wary of dehydration with rotavirus, which can be compounded if your diabetes was not under control (a high blood sugar will cause you to urinate more). Good luck and have a low threshold for getting checked out by your physician!

In brief: Depends

Sorry for no direct answer , but this depends on severity and duration of viral symptoms, how well your diabetes is controlled, what medications you are taking for diabetes (especially insulin).
Certainly the potential for complications exist. If symptoms are violent dicuss eith your doc.
