Muslims who fast during Ramadan must abstain from eating, drinking, taking oral medications, and smoking; however there are no restrictions on food or fluid intake between sunset and dawn. Most people consume two meals per day during this month, one after sunset and the other before dawn. This year, Ramadan takes place Tuesday, May 15th to Thursday, June 14th.
Pre-Ramadan Medical Assessment
It is important that you speak with your diabetes team about your wish to observe Ramadan. The diabetes team will perform a pre-Ramadan medical assessment (1-2 months before Ramadan) if possible.
