1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Especieally if you are a type 2 diabetic you can go into aroma crisis known a as nonketototic hyperosmostic coma.
It can be fatal if not treaters and results from very high blood sugars that cause a dehydration state. It is as important for type 2 diabetics to maintain good control as type 1s . Bad things can happen.

In brief: Complex

Glucose is one component of blood osmolarity and when it rises osmolarity rises.
Also when blood sugar is greater than 150 mg/dl there is a forced diuresis which raises the osmolarity as well. Sometimes this can spin out of control producing diabetic ketoacidosis. There are other subtle effects but they don't have much contribution to change it osmolality.
