Late onset diabetes in Maltese dogs

We recently had a diabetic, near coma, episode in a 12 year old bitch. Is there anyone out there that knows how common this is and what the likely prognosis of in a geriactric Maltese? Still waiting for all the tests, so can't be more specific than that. Anyone with experience, please reply.Thanks alot.
