In brief: Yes

In my experience as a pediatrician, diabetics-hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) both can seizure, coma, and even death.
Head trauma, illness and fever are other causes of seizures.

To be more precise, due to low blood sugars in patients being treated for diabetes with sulfonylureas, glinides, or too much insulin.
