1 doctor agrees

In brief: Same as anyone else

If the diabetic is prone to very low or very high blood sugars, the morphine may increase the sedation or even cause unconsciousness.
For the pain that comes from nerve damage from diabetes, there may be other classes of meds that work better without as many side effects.
