During the Holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. This means abstaining from all food and drink, including water. For Muslims who have diabetes, this can be a tricky situation. Some advise against it, but if done with the right preparation, care and support, it can be done.
Join us as Dr. Yousef Said covers the basics and answers all our questions like:
Is it safe to fast during Ramadan if I have diabetes?
Where can I get advice and support if I want to fast?
What special preparations should I make?
What should I do in an emergency?
What factors should I take into account for fasting during Ramadan with diabetes?
Dr Said also covers:
Tools and advice to help you reach your decision
Consulting with your diabetes care team to stay healthy during Ramadan
Medication, exercise, blood sugar during Ramadan
Breaking your fast safely
Questions to ask your doctor about fasting with diabetes
