Fasting safely this Ramadan - expert advice for those with diabetes

3 May 2019

Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar when members of the Muslim community devote themselves to their faith and fast from sunrise to sunset, starts on Sunday 5 May.

Lasting until Tuesday 4 June, the Ramadan fasting period is obligatory for almost all those from the Muslim faith.  Although certain groups are exempt for health and other reasons, some people with diabetes are keen to observe the fast, although the long daylight hours in the UK at this time of the year makes it a challenging time, even for those without medical conditions.
