Not recommended: You could, but why? Pedialyte has a lot of electrolytes and glucose -- they aren't really recommended for people w/diabetes -- that is, unless you have nausea and vomiting and are rehydrating yourself. In that case, you should have already discussed it with your doctor.

Account for carbs: As with any other fluid or food a diabetic consumes, it is fine as long as you account for the carbs in the fluid.
