From Detroit, Michigan, USA:
Can a 17 year old Type 1 diabetic take a water pill?
Yes, but why? I presume you mean a diuretic. Why? If for weight loss for wrestling, it can be very dangerous!
If prescribed by a doctor for a specific reason, then likely yes.
Never take medicines without permission of your parents or doctor. It can be fatal.
