yes, you can take as it contains zero carbs which'll be converted into sugars

No COKE/PEPSI et al. Water is best beverage.
Coke, Pepsi et al kills. Degenerative diseases are all handed down by these profit hungry Vampires (not Empires). It's a NEXUS.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Diabetics should be taking plenty of fluids.If the drink is low calorie and zero sugar drink , there is not much harm in taking such drinks.But , it happens that most of the drinks or energy drinks have very high levels of sugar so better avoided in Diabetics.

Take care.
