Does Pedialyte contain sugar?
I have diabetes so I'm wondering if I can take Pedialyte for dehydration due to diarrhea and vomiting. Does it contain sugar?

Not sure which type of pedialyte you are talking about. If you have some on hand you could just look at the label. But if not maybe this link will help.
If I were you I'd get some Propel fitness water. It tastes way better.

How are your numbers? If you are that dehydrated, a trip to the hospital might be a good idea. Call your doc. Yes, Pedialyte contains sugar, not much but some. I think it is like 7 carbs per 8 oz - but don't quote me. I know that I can't give it to my son when he is high. I would stick with crystal light for no carbs, but also get some juice because all of that vomiting might make you very low. Are you testing? Often? Good luck

You need to see your MD ASAP! Soaking it the tub 2-3 times a day for a 1/2 hr or so, will help with dehydration as well. Be sipping on water all the time.
Check the label, on the Pedialyte. See if you can find sugar free Gatorade. It is full of electrolytes.. and good for you.

Pedialyte: Each bottle contains: water, dextrose, potassium citrate, sodium chloride and sodium citrate. Nonmedicinal ingredients: FD&C Blue #1 and Red #40 (grape flavor) and FD&C Red #40 (bubblegum flavor). If the dextrose doesn't sit well with you, Glaceau's Smart Water might be a good source of electrolytes.

I'm a 45 year old woman and was recently diagnosed as being a borderline diabetic. My doctor prescribed some medication, but before filling it I decided to do some research on the internet which led me to the methods. After reading this ebook and applying the methods, my scepticism turned to 100% belief. I noticed that my energy levels increased significantly and I felt more rested in the morning, my symptoms started going away.
I am very happy to tell you that I have been feeling better than I have felt in years and my doctor informed me that he will be taking me off my prescriptions if I keep this up.
I recommend you use the Type 2 Diabetes Destroyer to naturally reverse your diabetes.Source(s): https://biturl.im/aULy0

The replacement products like PediaSure do contain sugar, but it isn't going straight through to your urine, so it doesn't matter. Also, why not just take an antibiotic? Even single-dose regimens are quite effective, and with the short courses you have few risks.

try crystal lites hydration, it works wonderful - tastes great - and is sugarless. but you should really talk to your docotor or check for keytones. it sounds like you could be DKA or heading that waySource(s): experience, type one diabetic
