Fasting in Ramadan increases cholesterol levels from 30% to 40%, which in turn protects the arteries of the heart from leakage of cholesterol
that is harmful to health

Doctor Ayman Saqli spoke to Anadolu Agency, presenting 10 valuable medical tips for patients with diabetes, pressure and heart disease, in order to follow them during this period of fasting and worship, and to adhere to preventive instructions against Corona.

He says: The doctor considers high blood pressure to be a very dangerous disease for people infected with the Corona virus, and a large number of them may suffer from other diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Patients with these diseases usually ask about the possibility of fasting, given the situation and the special condition they suffer from, without this negatively affecting them..

10 tips for diabetics in the month of Ramadan

Diabetic patients should consult a doctor before Ramadan, about the possibility of performing 
the obligation of fasting or not.

You should not eat large amounts of food during breakfast, and it is better to divide it into several small meals between breakfast and suhoor, in order to avoid sudden changes in blood sugar.

You should avoid eating simple or quickly absorbed sugars (starches, sweets, some very sweet fruits, white sugar, and others).

Be sure to eat more vegetables containing fiber (cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots and spinach), because they help strengthen the body for the long hours of fasting.

Diabetes treatment in Ramadan

Be sure to drink enough water (about 2 liters every day). Focus should be on the elderly, as dehydration symptoms appear on them more quickly than in other age groups.

Ensuring that you do physical activity continuously, walking is one of the most desirable sports.

Ensure daily monitoring of blood sugar, especially those who use insulin. Daily monitoring of sugar is very important in determining the appropriate insulin dose, to avoid low or high sugar.

Make sure to eat the suhoor meal and eat proteins during it, to avoid sugars in the meal, and to avoid a sudden rise in blood sugar that results in an accompanying rise in the hormone insulin, and this is what could expose the patient to a drop in blood sugar.
