On demand webinar: Diabetes and Ramadan
Ramadan is the Holy Month for Muslims; a time of worship, self-discipline, austerity and charity. Fasting during the month of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam and is obligatory for all Muslims.
Providing high quality pre-Ramadan education reduces the risks for people with diabetes who choose to fast. Therefore, it is vital that healthcare professionals who support people with diabetes have a good grasp of the effects of the significant changes in lifestyle during Ramadan and how diabetes management needs to be modified.
This webinar will offer practical advice and help you understand:
- The physiological effects of fasting
- Common changes in diet and lifestyle during Ramadan
- Risk stratification for people choosing to fast
- The risks of fasting and how to mitigate them
- Adjustments in diabetes treatments
