In brief: Variable.

First off, we presume it to be much better medically to control the blood sugar in the long term than to forgo treatment because of concern as to side effects of insulin or oral anti-diabetic agents.
Second, we know that risks of diabetes increase over time during which blood sugar is left uncontrolled, so controlling the blood sugar diligently over the long term is the rule for longevity.
