Yes, diabetics tend to be immunocompromised and prone to just about any infection, including ear infections.

With the proper diagnosis and treatment regime, diabetics will improve, just like the non-diabetics. It would not be possible to predict how long an infection would last, since I do not know the details (type of infection, treatment regime, diabetic control, etc.).
