Can a 21-year-old male with type 1 diabetes take diphenhydramine HCI for sleep aid?

From Ask the Pharmacist 

There are no exclusions or contra indications in regards to diabetics taking diphenhydramine (Benadryl). There are several conditions that a person with diabetes may have, that would perhaps be a problem with any antihistamine product like diphenhydramine. But diabetes alone would not exclude you from taking this medication if needed.
