Supporting Patients Living with Diabetes During Ramadan

The risk of fasting for those living with diabetes can vary depending on the type of diabetes, blood sugar levels, medication taken and any other diabetes-related conditions. Diabetes UK has lots of really helpful information on their website to help keep people living with diabetes safe and well during Ramadan.

There is also a free online course to help support patients with diabetes during Ramadan, which outlines the health risks and principles of medication adjustment to help avoid fasting-associated complications.
