I am perfectly capable of limiting myself to one full sugar margarita in an evening currently and that won't change if I happen to become diabetic. The difference in sugar between a full sugar margarita and a splenda magarita is neglible if you limit your consumption.
It depends on how much sugar you use. If you use two teaspoons, as many do that is about 9 grams of carbohydrates. If you are limiting your carbs to less than 30 grams a day, that is a big amount.

It can vary by individual, that is for sure. For those on a low carb regime, it matters a great deal.
