In brief: Usually

Glycosuria, or sugar in the urine, is typically caused by uncontrolled diabetes.
If severe kidney damage has not occurred, this will typically improve when the blood sugars are under tighter control.

In brief: Yes and no

If the glycosuria is caused by diabetes, obviously controlling the diabetes will correct the glycosuria.
Glycosuria can also occur in some people without diabetes - it is a problem with the way the kidneys handle glucose. This condition is called renal glycosuria, is perfectly benign, and requires no treatment.
