Personally, I think your medical history is private & should be your own personal business. But that being said, diabetes needs to be very carefully managed. God forbid, something happens to you at work such as severe hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia -- then a reliable, responsible & qualified person should know about your condition & how to help you quickly. If the colleague you told happens to be ill that day or indisposed, then what?
If you don't feel comfortable telling your boss, then confide in somebody else or inform HR. If you have medical personnel or a nurse available in your workplace, do let them know.
I am sure that on a daily basis, you manage your diabetes very well but I say this only for the sake of precaution in case of an emergency, your health & well-being are most important :-) I know many diabetics that wear the medi-alert bracelets for just this very reason, so in case something happens & 911 is called -- the EMTs will know immediately what to do. Remember in medical emergencies, time is of the essence.
Take care of yourself & be well!
