In brief: Water is best

Diabetes can cause dry mouth, especially when the sugar is high.
Gatorade has sugar in it, so it is not a good choice for you. In fact, it is probably pushing your sugar higher, which, as i said, makes for a drier mouth. Rehydrate with water, avoid concentrated sugars of all types. Remember, there is a lot of sugar in fruit juice and soda, too.
