does having diabetes make you grouchy?

YES!!! At least I do if my blood levels are out of control.

as a type 2 diabetic myself my answer is yes. if my sugar level is to low i take offence to anything said to me at the time. once i get my sugar back to normal i'm ok. if the sugar is to high i simply don't feel good, sluggish. all in all i describe diabetis as a roller coaster ride.

If you suddenly begin to feel jumpy, grouchy or out of sorts, take a moment to check your blood sugar level. Altered glucose levels can also make it harder to concentrate and make you feel fatigued.

High blood sugars affect EVERYTHING! Even your brain!

Constantly high blood sugars (indicating that the diabetes is out of control) causes mood swings, AND there is a link between diabetes and early-onset Alzheimer's Disease.

My mood swings were so bad that my wife almost divorced me before I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes!

Not all the time.

But if your sugar is low, or very high, it can create mood swings, and unpredictable moods.

Well, I guess it depends.
Diabetes itself doesn't make you grouchy. The only thing diabetes is is too little of a hormone (insulin) , or none is being made in the pancreas. That's also true of depression. Diabetes though, does not cause crankiness.
Hypoglycemia (too little blood sugar, caused by fasting or too much insulin) and Hyperglycemia (caused by too little insulin, or too many carbs/sugars), can cause crankiness. But people who do not have diabetes can have hypoglycemia, and they are cranky too. It's less common, but you can still get hypoglycemia (too much exercises, fasting for long periods of time...) even if you aren't diabetic. So diabetes itself, does NOT make you cranky, but symptoms can make you cranky, even if you aren't diabetic.
Make sense?

You become very irritable when your sugar is high. Karen H a Type 2 Diabetic.

Blood sugar swings can affect your moods. Being diabetic, all by itself, doesn't necessarily make you grouchy. Especially, if it's well controlled.
