If you are a diabetic and observing Ramadan fasting there is a word of caution for you! Diabetics should be careful while fasting, say doctors. The fasting period involves a gap of 12-15 hours. It can lead to hypoglycaemia (fall in blood sugar)or hyperglycaemia (rise in blood sugar). In worst case scenario it can lead to nausea, vomiting, deep gasping breathing and even coma. To avoid this, a suitable diabetic plan is necessary with changes in the diet and medication. Diabetics are also advised to refrain from carb-rich and oily food. They should eat lots of fibres like green veggies, fruits, oats, nuts etc. Diabetes management is very essential during Ramadan fasting. Consult your doctor for the best guidance.
