In brief: Unknown, unlikely

In the short term, glucosamine has not been shown to have any affect on sugar or developing diabetes.
Long-term affects are unknown, but no evidence exists to suspect that long-term use of glucosamine will lead to a higher risk of developing diabetes. Further studies are needed to prove this though.
