Cats that are diagnosed with Feline Diabetes typically have a normal life expectancy - as long as they are maintained on a special diet, a healthy lifestyle, and have their glucose checked as directed by the veterinarian.

Diabetic dogs face a much shorter life expectancy. Managing the disease, checking for the glucose regularly, and the dog does not develop any other health complications - they can live as long as dogs without diabetes.
