Abstract

A large number of adult Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan, including many people with type 2 diabetes. There are major changes in dietary pattern and medication consumption during this month and patients are therefore at risk of complications, such as hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia. This study evaluates the impact of an educational module and individual follow up on adherence to a healthy diet, medication use and glucose levels during Ramadan in a community setting.
