I'm guessing (been a while since I did Bio) it's to do with osmosis/moving from high pressure to low/vice versa.
So assuming that the body isn't producing insulin or enough of it, the sugar continues to circle around the blood instead of being taken up by cells. There is more water in the cells than in the blood so water moves out of the cells and shrink some. Sort of if you put RBC in water, they burst as water moves in.
