 Actually, TSA guidelines specifically state that people with diabetes can board
a plane with juice.

See the fact sheet at:

1. Am I allowed to bring my diabetes supplies with me on the plane?
 Yes. TSA specifically states that passengers are permitted to board airplanes
with insulin, syringes, insulin pumps, liquids "includ[ing] "water, juice, or
liquid nutrition," and "all diabetes related medication, equipment, and
supplies."
