Hi Peter

According to a study published in the highly reputable British Medical Journal (BMJ) oral rehydration solutions containing glucose, rice powder, or glycine can be safely administered to diabetic patients with acute diarrhoea and some dehydration. Ceralyte-50 is one such product which should be available from most pharmacies.
