Knowing that the majority of Muslims with diabetes opt for fasting during the holy month of Ramadan despite possible risks and complications, the Lebanese Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Lipids launched a map showing that it is possible for diabetics to fast during Ramadan if they abide by certain rules.This is because they do not distinguish themselves from others who are required to fast during the month of Ramadan through the abstinence of food, drink and oral medication from sunrise to sunset.Thus, if they decide to fast, diabetes patients should address the issue with health practitioners. LSEDL thus plans to increase efforts to reduce the difficulties diabetics face when fasting during Ramadan.
